“Have you googled Push Baby? It’s horrifying.”
That’s exactly what the UK band – Jake Roche (vocals, guitar), Charley Bagnall (guitar), Danny Wilkin (bass, keys) and Lewi Morgan (drums) expect to hear any time someone looks up their name. “No matter what we do we just want people to feel authenticity. Even with the name. People are going to love it or hate it, but at least it’s self-aware” says Jake. “’Baby’ is the most overused word in pop, so we’re upfront about what this band is coming out of the gate.”
This may be your first time hearing of them, but Push Baby is no stranger to the industry. In their past musical life, the four musicians made up pop band Rixton – known for their 2014 smash “Me And My Broken Heart,” which hit number-one on the UK Singles Chart. Despite that early success, the band wasn’t satisfied with the image they had presented the world. They had achieved the dreams of many, but it wasn’t exactly as they had hoped. Rixton just wasn’t them. As things began to slow down shortly after the release of their debut album, the band disappeared into a collective mourning period. They lost their confidence, and the insecurity was paralyzing. They stopped creating – in fact, they stopped everything. The band went totally silent.
