UK post-punk outfit Savages drop a cinematic live video of their recently released single, "Fuckers." The footage is stunning, and the performance is, well, anything but concise. I wouldn't call it sloppy, but the band definitely seems "in the zone" on this one. The almost 10-minute rendition of this track shows the band getting lost in the moment between a lyrical mantra, tight drum beat, and a wall of wailing guitars. It's hard for me not to get caught up in it as well. The atmosphere is so incredibly sinister, and the visuals only lend power to that sensation. Enjoy! Also, check out the band's latest record, Silence Yourself, if you haven't already.
A generational war is waged in the new video for Savages' "Strife," which comes off the band's great full-length debut, Silence Yourself. This is the second video the band has released that's been inspired by a moment in a novel. In this particular instance, it's Albert Camus' The Stranger. Savages' vocalist Jenny Beth has a hand in co-directing this video as well. Enjoy, and check out a review of Silence Yourself below:
UK rock outfit Savages drops some visuals inspired by Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse Five, which were created by Gergely Wootsch and band guitarist Gemma Thompson. They fit the overwhelmingly dark tone of this closing track incredibly well. Enjoy the video above, and check a review for the album below:
West Coast screamo outfit Touché Amoré drops a video for one of the better tracks off their new album, which drops this week, Is Survived By. Look for it on Deathwish, and expect a review very soon! In the meantime, check a review for the band's last full-length below:
