“Off Limits” is the latest release by wunderkind producer and New Zealand native BAYNK, who has teamed up with Sydney-bred trio Glades to show the best of what the southern hemisphere has to offer when it comes to sophisticated electro-pop.
In the wake of this year’s pulsating electronica of BAYNK's “Be In Love” and recent outing “Settle” featuring British singer-songwriter Sinead Harnett, he joins forces with Glades. Understated, bassy beats imbue a jaunty rhythm to the track, following hot on the heels of the Aussie band's recently released debut album To Love You. Showing a different side to the band thanks to BAYNK’s delectable touch, ‘Off Limits’ carries a lighter energy in comparison to Glades’ anthemic, punchy and emotive pop.
Detailing confessional musings and apprehensions of burgeoning romance as if they were penned in a journal, vocalist Karina Wykes weaves an undeniably relatable thread through the otherwise upbeat track. “I remember the night I was tongue-tied / and we both kept our secrets inside,” she sings in a crystalline timbre, pensive yet hopeful. “You said we should always be honest / but being honest is always the hardest”.
