Magnus Hesse looks almost defiantly into the camera when he peels himself out of Styrofoam in the video for his current single “You Won” or dances in front of washing machines in “Old June”. And maybe that’s what he wants: to challenge. Because as Bayuk, the native Swabian has been making songwriter pop since his debut “Rage Tapes” from 2018, balancing right between melancholy and euphoria in a remarkable way and evading all unambiguity - like a good movie by David Lynch, who Hesse noticeably adores, both on a cinematic and sonic level. Anyone listening quickly notices this. Never too much minor key, never undercooking the major key, his music presents a bit of pop, mixed with a pinch of rock, then some folk, and a whole load of fresh ideas that seamlessly intertwine in his compositions. With his new album “Exactly The Amount Of Steps From My Bed To Your Door”, the self-taught guitarist and pianist shows once again this year that his development as a songwriter is far from done.
