First Names


Electronic Press Kit

Garage rock two piece based in Austin, TX. 


Originally from Indianapolis, IN., garage fuzz two piece First Names has gone through many iterations before landing on the current lineup of core members Shelby Kanouse (Vocals, Drums) and Josh Taylor (Vocals, Guitar). "We've been playing music together since the sixth grade talent show with a bunch of people coming in and out along the way, but we just kinda never stopped." said Taylor. This steadfastness eventually saw them playing shows around Indianapolis and to their most recent foray which lands them in Austin, TX. where they wrote and produced their debut LP The Living Room. The band is currently playing shows, filming their own music videos, hosting their podcast Couch Radio, and writing new fuzz soaked narratives.
