Last year, New Zealand favorite BAYNK released Someone's EP, featuring tracks including Poolside, What you Need (feat. NÏKA) and Come Home. His easy sound is reminiscent of Hayden James, Bon Iver and even Autograf— perfect for summer weekend mornings.

He has a great interview with Redbull music about finding his potential as a musician, as well as his finding inspiration from artists like Travis Scott and Mura Masa, here. He's playing June 9th in San Diego for those of you looking to add a show to the calendar.

ZHU x Tame Impala and GENERATIONWHY

ZHU recently teamed up with Australian psychadelics Tame Impala on a new single — My Life. Despite mixed reviews, there are parts of the EDM track that have a pretty solid bounce. 

In what's reminiscent of Prince, Steven Zhu is an interesting artist in that he prefers to remain anonymous outside of his stage name, ZHU, so that "fans can focus on the music rather than who's behind it." The pace and diversity of rolling sounds in the well-queued synth-pop + unique monologue integration in his summer 2016 album GENERATIONWHY make it a recurring album in my playlist rotation and definitely worth a listen.
