Baio – The Names
Baio just droped the fourth song and title track off of his upcoming debut album, The Names, available for pre-order now, out September 18th on Glassnote Records.
The song follows up the critically praised tracks “Brainwash yyrr Face”, “Endless Rhythm” and “Sister of Pearl” whose video recently premiered on Vice’s Noisey (WATCH HERE) and was the most played track at California’s KCRW that same week. Meanwhile “Sister Of Pearl” picked up support in the UK from the likes of Radio 1’s Annie Mac and Huw Stevens, and BBC 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne and Steve Lamacq.
The Names, produced by Baio, explores ideas of space — of belonging, identity and finding a place in the world. Some of this was occasioned by his own geographical shift — having recently moved to London, he found himself struck by his new city’s expanse of sky, green space, and globalness — elements that infuse the record’s sound.
