The band also debut a spectacular live video for “Fuckers”, shot at the London Forum and directed by Giorgio Testi:
Finally, Savages lead singer Jehnny Beth has penned a MUST READ blog entry for Huffington Post, “My Year in Savages”:
“The music of Savages was imagined to function like armour. Four women facing the world, facing the industry, protected by their sound : indestructible. And it worked. We came out with a fully-formed aesthetic, controlled vision, direct sound. Some would say austere. But it was the crowds, all around the world, who taught me it was okay to put down the gun.”
Meanwhile, the second of two SAVAGES-curated Pop Noire events takes place in London tonight. Following the first event at The Shacklewell Arms last night (which featured ZZZ’s (Japan), A Dead Forest Index, Bashan (Gemma Thompson, SAVAGES) and a SAVAGES DJ set), the second night takes place at east London’s Birthdays and features Johnny Hostile & Jehnny Beth (Live DJ set), Le Vasco (France) and Romy xx (DJ Set).
