Published September 13, 2013

Being but 17-19 years of age, these three girls have found impressively fast footing in a genre most often dominated by middleaged men. They play an updated 2012 version of ’90s stoner rock and grunge, with heavy guitar riffs and screeching vocals, but still draw in references from sludge and heavy metal. It is filthy rock with dirty guitar riffs, complex and detailrich compositions, earcatching hooks, and screetching callback vocals. The Danish and international reviewers are already convinced with five and six star reviews and recommendations from Mojo Magazine’s Kieron Tyler and Intro Magazine. Having supported San Francisco cool Ty Segall, guitar icon Thurston Moore and his band Chelsea Light Moving, as well as a ten date tour with The Floor is Made of Lava, the girls continue to win new fans and impress with their raw, cool calmness and eagerness to prove themselves. In the autumn of 2012, Baby in Vain released a 7″ single ‘Machine Gun Girl/The Catcher’ and in December 2013 they released ‘Sweetheart Dreams’ digitally with a stunning video.
