The latest in a string of new music, Brooklyn’s rising star BAYLi has shared “Underneath,” another taste of her upcoming ‘SUMMER‘ mixtape. The track sees BAYLi acknowledging herself as a flawed human with insecurities and fears, just like everyone else.
Directed by Ellis Bahl, the “Underneath” visual finds BAYLi eyeing her own reflection through a series of staggered mirrors, lamenting on the disparity between her outward appearance and inner struggle. “Underneath it all, I’m crazy,” she sings as she lies on the ground, staring into the distance. The song and accompanying video begs an important question of a lover: “Are you ready and willing to be with me on my worst days as much as you are willing to be there for me on best?”

At just 24 years old, BAYLi is no stranger to the industry. As lead singer of The Skins, a crew of New York School of Rock classmates, she quickly caught the attention of Rick Rubin, who oversaw the release of their debut EP ‘Still Sleep’ (American/Republic Records). The EP quickly found The Skins touring with the likes of Albert Hammond Jr. and Jake Bugg.
Releasing new music throughout the coming weeks, BAYLi continues to celebrate her ‘SUMMER’ mixtape with an opening slot for Ravyn Lenae at Surf Lodge in Montauk, NY on August 25th.
