Baby In Vain Shares Video For “To Heaven and Back” Off Debut LP ‘More Nothing’ Out August 25 On Partisan Records

Denmark’s Baby In Vain have just unveiled the video for latest single “To Heaven And Back” off their debut full length album More Nothing coming out August 25th. Says NME,”Baby in Vain are giving guitar music a snarling shot of adrenaline…they steep their songs in ghoulish chants and wave after wave of fuzz.”

Inspired by the visuals of Californian bands in the early days of MTV, the video was shot in one complete take, using a ENG DVCAM camera (the same kind used to shoot the news in the ’90s). The video sees the guitarists Lola Hammerich and Andrea Thuesen Johansen skating whilst hitching a ride from drummer Benedicte Pierleoni’s moped. Says the band, “The two coolest things to do in the world are skateboarding and driving a motorcycle. What do you do when you don’t have a motorcycle? You steal a moped.”

Baby In Vain’s debut album More Nothing was recorded in just 11 days in Eve Studios with producer Rob Ellis (PJ Harvey, Scott Walker, Bat For Lashes). The Copenhagen-based trio have been crafting their sound since they were still in high school and have shared stages with luminaries such as The Jesus And Mary Chain and The Kills. Alison Mosshart handpicked the band to join them on both US and UK tours. Despite the minimal set up of just two guitars and drums, Baby In Vain make riff heavy anthems ready to fill stadiums.

The band have also just announced a series of UK shows including a performance alongside Deap Vally at their Fluffer Pit Party in East London (8/23), two Rough Trade in-stores in London and Nottingham, and sets at both this year’s Reading and Leeds Festivals. All dates below and here.

“a visceral combination of Sleater Kinney, Babes in Toyland, and Queens of the Stone Age with boss-ass results” –Vice Noisey

“a tightly-wound, post-hardcore song that sounds like someone crawling through the trenches of a depressive episode” –Stereogum

“What might sound steeped in nostalgia is instead breathlessly pointing forwards” –DIY

“Drawing parallels with the White Stripes seems too easy; both swaddle muddy blues riffs in howling distortion without the help of a bassist. To do so, though, would blindly miss Baby in Vain’s inventive edge and a more ominous air than Jack White could ever wish for. ” –Impose
