Lola Hammerich (vocals/guitar), Andrea Thuesen (vocals/guitar) and Benedicte Pierleoni (drums) are a trio not to be messed with. Making rumbling rock and grimy grunge that’s as malevolent as a midnight knife fight, their sound is equal parts Kyuss and Sleater-Kinney, with a dash of Babes In Toyland for extra punch.

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.

The three met at a mutual friends’ prog-rock’n’roll gig in their native Copenhagen back in 2010 and formed the band on the spot, with Andrea naming the three-piece before they’d even left the venue. Their first rehearsal came a few days later, at a local afterschool youth centre. “Lola and me both wanted to be shredding some cool guitar solos,” explains Andrea of their decision not to enlist a bass player – something they’ve stuck by, instead achieving their booming deep end by cunning use of bass amps and layering guitar sounds. The pair also split the vocals, meaning there’s not one, but two dynamic frontwomen heading up  Baby In Vain’s killer live show. “It’s just because it was a faster process when writing the songs,” states Andrea. “When we started playing there were a couple of songs that Lola sang, but then I came up with a song. Whoever wrote the lyrics would sing that track.”
