Tell us a bit about yourself? Baby Names are a two-piece band from Leeds. We play emo/punk music with lots of energy and strong melodies. Big influences include bands such as Modest Mouse, The Hotelier, Algernon Cadwallader.

There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest? We do everything ourselves. We booked all 35 of our shows in 2017 without any help and we even released a 7-inch lathe vinyl DIY. As a band of only a year old, we've toured the UK 3 times and have plans for further afield for this year.

What’s your back-story? A special thing about music is the way that people can relate to it. We've felt that ourselves, listening to the bands that inspire us. Being able to connect to a song, knowing that somebody feels the same way about something can be comforting and up lifting. We write music because it helps us express ourselves and how we're feeling, so for anybody to relate to that at all means the world.

What are you working on at the moment? We're currently assembling a new EP due out at some point in 2018, as well as booking a long tour for the coming summer!
