Baby In Vain are not your typical Scandinavian indie band. Drawing on the gang-mentality and bluesy swagger of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Queens Of The Stone Age, they’ve been together six years, but are still quite young; Lola’s 19, Benedicte is 21 and Andrea 22. Their early material saw them producing their own twist on stoner-rock, but over the past five years they’ve branched out into much broader territory, pulling in the industrial menace of post-punk alongside fuzzy expeditions into the fringes of doom and garage punk.
Baby In Vain’s addictive, aggressive sound has received plaudits by everyone from Thurston Moore (“It was really a pleasure to play with Baby In Vain tonight. It’s always good to see new, young energy on the stage investigating all the heavy, new rock action that is out there.” he gushed) to Alison Mosshart of The Kills, who handpicked the band to join them tour not once, but twice. “We were the chosen ones,” smiles Benedicte of their US jaunts with the grind-rock icons.
After half a decade of gigging, they’ve now got their frenetic live show down to a fine art. 2017 looks set to bring with it more gigs, more music and more madness. “We’ve going play a lot of shows,” explains Andrea, before Lola adds perhaps the most important part of all. “And party.” she says.
