For a minute now, we’ve been fans of the heavily crafted electronica of Austin’s Bayonne. Since he began, we’ve probably caught at least ten of his enigmatic performances, and since it dropped we’ve been blasting his latest album Drastic Measures. Ahead of another large scale run of touring he’s dropped a new lyric video for the catchy song “Abilia,” and just like everything the producer composer does, it’s not like most lyric videos.
Weighing heavy on animation, the video seems to encapsulate the spirit of the hook filled lush sounding song. One of the strongest songs on the album, the music snaps and pops with a clustered drum step that keeps the song moving forward. The video also has the luster of the song, keeping your eyes on your screen while the song fills you with joy.
You can stream the video above or on YouTube, you can stream Drastic Measures on all streaming sites, you can purchase it in all digital music shops, and you can purchase it in multiple bundles and on multiple formats either from Bayonne or from Mom+Pop Records. Bayonne will be on tour starting April 12 at 8th Wonder Brewery in Houston, TX until both weekends at Lollapalooza in Chicago,IL August 01 through August 04. A complete list of his tour dates can be found here.
