Baby In Vain, Danish all-female trio who bring all the thunder.



The Hope @ The Great Escape.


Was it full? And how were the crowd?

It was absolutely packed to the rafters, with lots and lots of disappointed punters lingering outside the venue.


So what was the set like?

Incendiary, from the second noise began rumbling out of the girls’ guitars, all that could be heard and seen was the noise of Black Sabbath’s doomy riffing colliding with Sonic Youth and Led Zeppelin’s power, all building to oddly doo wop esque choruses. It might sound odd, but it was absolutely incredible.


Any good between song banter?

Almost none, until singer Lola Hammerich quite literally said ‘Farewell’ to the packed crowd. Just as well, it would have ruined all the mystique.


Did they put on much of a show?

Hair and guitars everywhere, that’s all you need to know.


What was the highlight of the set?

New single ‘Sweetheart Dreams’ sounded brilliantly demented, a real highlight.


Where can I catch them next?

They play London’s Old Blue Last on Monday (May 12th), get down there if you can.


You can check out their new single 'Sweetheart Dreams' in our digital store here.
