Savages | Silence Yourself

April 30, 2013 at 8:57 am 1 comment

Savages will be releasing their much-anticipated debut record, “Silence Yourself”, on May 7th via Matador Records and Pop Noire. And as an early surprise, the band are currently streaming the entire 11-song record at their official website. You can listen to all the tracks, and a lyric sheets pops up as each track moves along. The record starts off with “Shut Up” (which opens with an excerpt from the John Cassavetes film “Opening Night”), which will give you a rough idea for the sound of the record. It’s a rollicking, Factory Era-fueled, feedback-loving, sort of post-punk style, wiry, heavy and hard-driving. It’s the kind of record that needs to be played loud. The album was recorded in Northwest London’s Fish Factory. Follow the band at facebook and Matador. You can stream the record here. Watch the band’s video for “Shut Up” below, directed by Giorgio Testi. It starts with a spoken word manifesto read by vocalist Jehnny Beth. Note: Savages are: Ayse Hassan (bass), Fay Milton (drums), Gemma Thompson (guitar) and Beth (vocals). — David D. Robbins Jr.
