Bayonne Shares Joyous Caroline Rose Remix of ‘Perfect’, Announces London Headline Show
December 1, 2023 BY Emma Orland
Acclaimed Austin-based multi-hyphenate experimental composer and musician Roger Sellers, better known as Bayonne, has shared a remix by singer-songwriter-musician Caroline Rose of his track “Perfect”, transforming the joyously radiant alt-pop of the original into an addictively euphoric daydream of a party jam.
“I was immediately blown away by Caroline’s interpretation of this track. It’s so much fun, full of energy, and completely sets a new tone to the song,” Bayonne says. “I love when an artist tears everything down and takes their own approach to a remix, and that’s exactly what she did here.”

Bayonne’s third full-length album Temporary Time was released via Nettwerk back in May this year and featured the original version of “Perfect”. In the making of his latest body of work, the producer and multi-instrumentalist found himself in even greater need of an outlet for his kinetic creative impulses, thanks to an intense convergence of events in his personal life: his father’s diagnosis with and eventual death from cancer, the end of a significant relationship, and an overwhelming struggle with depression and anxiety. Deeply informed by a deliberate transformation of his musical process, Temporary Time ultimately makes for his most extensive work—an album of painfully raw introspection and otherworldly beauty, turning his vast imagination into an elegant yet wildly psychedelic form of electronic pop, equal parts meditative and mesmerising.
Bayonne will be playing a headline show in London on 10th April 2024 at Omeara, his first UK date in over five years. Tickets are available and on sale HERE.
Since his 2016 debut album Primitives, Bayonne has channelled his vast imagination into an elegant yet wildly experimental form of electronic pop, equal parts meditative and mesmerising.
After initially putting out a handful of avant-folk-leaning projects under his own name, he adopted the Bayonne moniker in the mid-2010s and released Primitives to acclaim from major outlets such as MOJO Magazine, who noted that the album merges “the celestial overlaid vocals of AnCo, Toro Y Moi’s soaring gauzy electronic pop, the live, looping sample techniques of tUnE-yArDs and D.D. Dumbo, and even Steve Reich’s shuddering, percussive experiments in repetition—with charming results.” An artist that NPR has hailed for his “sheer talent and keep-you-guessing nature”. Now signed to Nettwerk for his third album, Temporary Time ultimately makes for his most extensive work—a record of painfully raw introspection and otherworldly beauty, turning his vast imagination into an elegant yet wildly psychedelic form of electronic pop, equal parts meditative and utterly mesmerising.
