March 21st, 1% of One promoter’s hosted an unmissable night of perfect live music at
Kick-starting the evening, delectable songstress Emily Magpie took to the stage.
Captivated by the gripping and fortuitous sounds being created in front of the crowd, the room felt smaller as all came together to witness Bayonne relish in his live environment. Performing a mixture of tracks from his new sophomore album release ‘Drastic Measures’ which was released earlier this year (February 22nd) via City Slang and those well-known classics from this standout debut album ‘Primitives’ released back in 2016.
‘QA’ opened the show and from the get-go the audience witnessed Sellers abilities to build each of his compositions, creating such complex textures, endless layers
Performing tracks such as ‘Drastic Measures‘, ‘Appeals’, ‘I Know‘ and a heroic highlight was the live version and standout creation for ‘Abilia‘, that immersive build up was phenomenal- the set really had it all.
Throughout his set, Bayonne stepped out of his comfort zone that he created on stage, stepped away from his pedals and piano and reached out to the audience. Sellers relished the response from his fans, he’s mastered crowd participation. From the crowd clapping with him, cheering along, to Bayonne recording his triumphant applause and live looping that back through an interlude- your eyes were continuously fixated. Hypnotizing loops, layers and intricate vocals, it was a flawless performance.
Bayonne knows his material and understands his instruments to such a great extent that within his instrumentation he leaves room to improvise and rework to whatever moment Sellers is in. Each track skillfully controlled throughout. Bayonne is a sound artist, a desirable composer who designs his structure and builds on ample layers. A must-see.
