Savages – ‘Husbands’/’Flying to Berlin’

Still buzzing from their fervent set at this weekend’s 1-2-3-4 Shoreditch festival, it’s only fair to give praise to what became one of the pivotal performances of the day.  Savages, an all-girl post-punk four piece, tore through their set with ferocious energy and skill.  On the face of it Savages appear to be incredibly in-tune with the sensibilities of the original punk movement, yet they manage to retain an innovative edge that combines agression with forboding vocals and a dash of neurosis.

Savages removed themselves from the stage to raptuous applause from an open-mouthed audience, having ripped them open and exposed them unsympathetically to a powerful concoction of menacing energy.  Listen to AA-side single and only release to-date ‘Husbands’/’Flying to Berlin’ for a dose of the good stuff and then wait, impatiently, for new material.
