Copenhagen trio Baby In Vain brought their dueling guitars, corrosive vocals and manic percussion to Camden Assembly on Monday night, and though they deserved a bigger crowd (pesky Monday night gigs), they still took us ‘To Heaven and Back’. We’ve been following Andrea, Lola, & Benedicte since they released their EP For The Kids in 2016, and we’re hooked on their achingly cool sounds.
After the polished performance of support act Do Nothing, the girls took to the stage and kicked things off with ‘To Heaven and Back’, the lead single from their debut album More Nothing, which was released on Partisan Records earlier this year. Fans of the record were spoiled for choice when it came to the set list; which featured the swirling goodness of their latest single ‘Low Life’, a mesmerizing rendition of ‘Transcendent’, the melodic ‘Last Of The Turner Girls’ and the abrasive glory of ‘Not For You’.
Baby In Vain’s performance style is as captivating and eclectic as the tracks they’ve produced, and our only criticism is that they didn’t play the mind-melting ‘Martha’s View’, the lead single from For The Kids. The jagged synths on ‘The Urge’ and the visceral glory of ‘Jesusfreaks’ live however, acted as fair compensation for this oversight. Their current UK tour ends on October 21st in Oxford, so don’t miss out on your chance to see one of the coolest live bands around. Grab your tickets here.
