With their debut album “Silence Yourself” available now through Matador, Savages, the UK-based, girl powered, post-punk group has managed to do something few bands in recent years have – get me to buy an advance sale ticket to a no-seat-guaranteed live show.
By the way, there’s still time. You can join me there, tickets are available online – Neumos, Sept. 23 @8 PM!
Fronted with fierce intensity by Jehnny Beth, Savages is Gemma Thompson on guitar, Ayşe Hassan on bass, and Fay Milton on drums. Check out this video – one part spoken word, one-part visual exposition – and then, head over to their site and load up everything you need to know about what could be your new favorite band:
