The Danish punks (when was the last time a punk band wasn’t Scandi?) Baby in Vain will go out on tour with The Kills very soon but prior to that they have unleashed a video for their brilliant track ‘Martha’s View’. The band use their heavy sound to punctuate the darkness of this video with slams of light.
The spinning wheel of this track is rested firmly on the heavy rhythm, this is comparable also in the video as the band stand above the camera and watch it spin whilst the rhythm pierces the darkness with a flash of light, a la campfire ghost stories.
The one-take video builds as the band move closer and closer to the viewer and ends with a cacophony of noise. Well, they are Danish punks after all.
