Watch Sevy and Bayang link up in video for new single ‘Lycra’

Taken from the duo's new collaborative EP 'notfromhere'

Sydney rappers Sevy and Bayang have shared the visuals for their recently-released track ‘Lycra’. The swerving, trap-tinged cut is taken from the pair’s fresh collaborative EP ‘notfromhere’.

Directed by Jeremy Elphick, the video for ‘Lycra’ sees both artists dance, spit their respective verses and joyride atop a rainy carpark rooftop in Pyrmont. Watch it below:

Produced by Utility, ‘notfromhere’ arrived late last month via the relatively new Sydney-based rap label Trackwork, which has previously issued releases from fellow underground Australian hip-hop figures Snoee Badman and T Breezy.

“I initially met Utility through our friend Serwah. An interest in left-of-centre hip-hop always bound Sevy and I together, and linking up with Ute ended up being the perfect note for us,” Baughan told NME.

According to the duo, the EP’s roots lie in the foundations of Sydney hip-hop, while also drawing on alternative trap, grime and drill movements taking place overseas.

Though ‘notfromhere’ marks the first official release from both artists, they’ve been actively making music for a few years. Bayang is the solo moniker of Harry Bonifacio Baughan, who until recently fronted the incendiary, anti-colonial metal outfit Dispossessed. The group released final album ‘Warpath Never Ended’ last year before quietly calling it quits.

Earlier this year, Baughan teamed up with Melbourne artist Teether for a track on the latter’s album ‘Desert Visuals’.

Zambian rapper Sevy, meanwhile, has been slowly but steadily making one-off appearances since 2018. Most recently, the rapper contributed a track to ‘Consequences’, a compilation organised by producer Air Max ’97.
