Bayonne – “Spectrolite” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Roger Sellers adopted the name Bayonne after press in his hometown of Austin kept referring to him as a DJ. Bayonne is not a DJ — he’s a multi-instrumentalist with a soft, delicate sound like Youth Lagoon or Washed Out. Today, we premiere the music video for Bayonne’s song “Spectrolite” from his upcoming Mom+Pop debut. According to Sellers, the song is about a stone that his girlfriend at the time brought him back from Australia. The travel theme is made evident in the music video; directed by Lauren Gregory, it’s a tale of traveling in a stop-motion style with illustrations that come to life, including images of Alvin And The Chipmunks on the airplane screen (timely!) and waking up to a flight attendant hovering over you. Watch below.

Bayonne has a couple tour dates this week:
11/06 Austin, TX – Fun Fun Fun Festival
11/09 Los Angeles, CA – Teragram Ballroom (supporting Toro Y Moi)

“Spectrolite” is out now on Mom+Pop Music. Get it from iTunes, Amazon, or Spotify.
