Savages – “Strife” – New Video

January 17th, 2014 at 6:15 am by Judge

Today Savages release the new video for the track Strife taken from their debut album Silence Yourself.

Some words from Savages:

“We wanted to make a video that focused on a timeless human physicality and physical expression, a search for understanding through the movement, action and reaction of two characters. We chose the classical landscape of the empty beach.  A fight ensues between two men: one older, one younger; a tragic outcome, and death.

French director Antoine Carlier – co-founder of Pop Noire records with Jehnny Beth, who previously collaborated with the band on their artwork – filmed the scene with a modern black & white aesthetic on the beaches of Gironde in South-West France. The film is a play on human instincts and desire for survival, echoing the famous beach murder scene in the novel ‘The Stranger’ by Albert Camus.

Either a tale from the past or science-fiction, this is an endless story of human struggle. We see the fragmentation between two generations, a subject of predilection for Savages (ref: ‘I Am Here’ manifesto), where the ‘young, intelligent and radical people’ live in servitude to established elders.”

Directed by Antoine Carlier
Produced by Walter Films and Savages
