Baby In Vain
"Baby In Vain is very cool! Heavy, rock, dirty! Very, very good!" - Thurston Moore
"Baby In Vain are trying to carve out some space between Melvins and The White Stripes, their brand of noise-leaning garage and blues rock simply slays because it's delivered with utter conviction and punishing accuracy." - John Doran - Vice
"These three young women from Copenhagen, Denmark play an improbably fresh stew of riot grrrl confrontation and gnarly-treble double-guitar tangle." - David Fricke - Rolling Stone
Skinny Girl Diet
"This music is wonderful: brash, unafraid, reared and raised on my peers (Babes In Toyland, Heavens To Betsy, old school grunge). Female. Teenage. Reminds me of Skinned Teen a little, but it would. Riot Grrrl, like I always understood it … i.e. female empowering, and not scared to experiment with new musical forms, and not rooted. Exciting, because this music could go anywhere. There’s a Tumblr blog full of cat pictures and vaguely menacing attitude. Of course there is. There’s a great song on the MySpace called ‘Eyes That Paralyze’ which mixes the spirit of the ‘lost’ Slits Rough Trade/Y album with some Furious Pig-style harmonics and wickedly distorted guitars. Of course there is. The band are from London. Of course they … no, wait, that’s one reason why they sound so refreshing. This music is often American. Miasmic repetition. Sure there’s miasmic repetition. There are a couple of free downloads on the Soundcloud page. Of course there are … and of course they aren’t the best songs. Nathan from The Gossip would LOVE this – it’s Gothic, grunge AND teen female." Everett True
"This is classic old school rock, this is riotous girl rebellion, above all, this is frankly something you should be getting yourself some of." Shindig! Magazine/Happening!
"They are a talented bunch of young ladies with their own sense of style (and I suspect) they have a habit of giving a two-fingered salute to anyone who gives them flak. You go girls! (as the saying goes)." New Untouchables
Atypical girls bonding over a love of everything DIY and punk, Brutalistas got together in 2013 with the aim of making raw, primitive rock 'n' roll. Their main inspirations are Bikini Kill, Joy Division, The Stooges, The Ramones, Patti Smith and The Slits.
