Copenhagen’s all girl rock trio Baby In Vain recently released a disorientating blues-sludge and ferocious new single ‘Muscles.’ Despite having an average age of under 20, these three musicians have amassed acclaim across the globe and shared stages with the likes of Ty Segall and Thurston Moore and are about to embark on a two week run opening up for The Kills. They kicks things off in LA this evening and will return to LA for a headline slot at The Echo on August 11. Other major markets include Chicago, SF, Detroit and Portland.

Delivering a stunningly intense show…Sludge-driven, confrontational and punk-influenced, Clash Magazine says that the single’Muscles’ is “Baby In Vain at their most direct, taut and addictive”. Reminiscent of The Melvins, say, but with the weight of Black Sabbath.”
Dubbed “stupidly exciting” by NME, the three prodigious young musicians are known for their sharp riffs, darkly intense live performances and irresistible dual vocals from Lola Hammerich and Andrea Thuesen rounded out by powerful drumming from Benedicte Pierleoni.
‘Muscles’ comes as the band put the finishing touches to their debut album, due for release late 2015. Baby In Vain take the templates laid out by the likes of Black Sabbath, MC5 and The Melvins and skew them with youthful, experimental abandon, to create something completely unique and truly invigorating. It is filthy rock with dirty guitar riffs, complex and detail rich compositions, ear catching hooks, and screeching callback vocals. Being but 19-21 years of age, the three girls have impressively fast found their own place in a genre most often dominated by middle aged men.
‘Muscles’ was first heard on Baby In Vain’s SoundCloud last month and has been lauded by NME, DIY and Guardian and been played by Phil Taggart on BBC Radio 1. They also unveiled the provocative and surreal new video for their track ‘Muscles’. Surrounded by a muscle-bound henchman and a sickening buffet of sugary sweets and seafood, the Danish teenagers take control in this confrontational display of power and sexual energy.
