NYC’s Baby Got Back Talk Release Debut EP ‘Existential Shred’
Named one of Alternative Press’s ’17 Black Alternative Bands Leading The Next Generation
Named one of AfroPunk’s ‘Top 8 Punkest Bands on the Planet’
“Brooklyn’s Baby Got Back Talk remains a jewel in the borough’s crown.”- Afropunk
“On their upcoming EP Existential Shred New York pop punk band Baby Got Back Talk delve into the very nature of human existence. They tackle death, life changes, and the state of the world with excellent literary lyrics, plenty of synths, and a healthy dose of hope.” – Punk News
“A catchy pop punk hook-fest that throws the middle finger to anyone claiming that being marginalized is “in” these days. “Model Minority” could become an anthem of importance for queer folks and POC in the punk scene today.”- Tuned Up
“Piercing guitars and chugging rhythms all add to the garage-punk vibe but the tempo is more relaxed which makes this possibly more accessible but doesn’t dull its edge at all. The slick, smooth vocals give this a radio-friendly tone as well which, when combined with the musicianship and songwriting, makes Baby Got Back Talk an incredibly intriguing and exciting prospect.”- Listen With Monger
New school pop punkers Baby Got Back Talk have released their Wiretap Records debut EP, ‘Existential Shred.’

About Baby Got Back Talk
Baby Got Back Talk is a D-I-why?-because-we-gotta punk party from New York City. The band teamed with producer John Naclerio (Just Surrender, The Audition) at Nada Recording Studios for their latest EP, ‘Existential Shred’ due out later this Summer 2022 on Wiretap Records.
Formed in 2017, Baby Got Back Talk initially consisted of vocalist/bassist G’Ra Asim, synth op/vocalist Rhiana Hernandez, and lead guitarist/vocalist Jake Lazaroff. After years of sharing bills with local compatriots like Choked Up, Universe Ignore Her and Gibbons– acts that were all anchored by the propulsive stick work of drummer Wes Ruiz– Baby Got Back Talk welcomed Ruiz into the fold.
“We’re what punk looks like in the 2020s: driven by a DIY ethic, conversant with social issues–especially as they pertain to gender and race, enabled by inter-web, bankrolled by day jobs, powered by a rad likeminded community, resonant with the most venerable iterations of rock ‘n’ roll but firmly committed to injecting some new flavor into the mold.”
The band has released a pair of EPs in 2017’s Take This The Wrong Way and 2018’s Up In Open Arms. Their full-length debut, 2020’s Genre Reveal Party, was mixed by Paul Leavitt (All Time Low, Senses Fail, Yellowcard).
