Savages - "Fuckers"


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.

Savages - "Strife"


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:

Savages - "Marshall Dear"


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:

Savages Perform "I Am Here"


English post-punk outfit, Savages, has made an atmospheric music video for the track "I Am Here" from its great debut album Silence Yourself. Minimal and dreary, it features the band performing the song in a dank, abandoned building. Watch it above!

Savages - "She Will"

New Tracksadmin1 Comment

UK post-punk act Savages have dropped a new track and album details. The band's full-length debut, Silence Yourself, will be out on May 7th via Matador Records, and this new cut, "She Will," definitely lives up to the bar that was set by Savages' previously released tracks.

"She Will" is fantastically moody, and the guitar leads are absolutely eerie. The band's dissonant and depressive explosions of emotion are a winning characteristic as well on this song. I think I can confidently expect a solid record here, don't you?
