Savages is an all-girl post-punk group brought to us from the lovely land of London. Their buzz has mostly been through word-of-mouth, but their raw girl power personality has sent howls all the way to the U.S., where this cult band is motioning past the horizon of today’s counterculture.
Today’s track from Savages is a B-side titled “Flying to Berlin.” Frontwoman Jehnny Beth’s welcomes the track with sweeping sexiness draped over sharp, propulsive bass guitar and swarming synths. This song smacks us with an indestructible sound, designed with eighties nuances aiming to remind us of an evolving genre that has been somewhat neglected.
Just by listening to this one track, you can assume that these ladies are cool. Their defiant, old-school aesthetic and passionate energy definitely makes this quintet one to follow-up with in 2013. I know I will.
