Savages

The gym may look like a replica from Nirvana’s mega-hit video, “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” but, something is different here, as UK post-punk Savages, attack the ears with an aggressive, trance-like guitar riff in their video for “The Answer.” There’s light in this gym. There are real people with faces and emotion thrashing to that hard as hell guitar riff. Where’s the old man and the mop bucket? The answer, it turns out isn’t to drop out of society, as it was in grunge time. No, the answer is love. Savages will be releasing their second album, Adore Life, January 22nd on Matador Records.
