The debut album - released 6th May 2013 (on Matador Records / Pop Noire)
“SAVAGES is not trying to give you something you didn’t have already, it is calling within yourself something you buried ages ago, it is an attempt to reveal and reconnect your PHYSICAL and EMOTIONAL self and give you the urge to experience your life differently, your girlfriends, your husbands, your jobs, your erotic life and the place music occupies in your life. Because we must teach ourselves new ways of POSITIVE MANIPULATIONS, music and words are aiming to strike like lightning, like a punch in the face, a determination to understand the WILL and DESIRES of the self.
This album is to be played loud in the foreground.” (SAVAGES, 2013)
Savages will release their debut album ‘Silence Yourself’ on 6th May 2013 on Matador Records / Pop Noire.
Available on LP, CD & download, the album was recorded in north-west London’s Fish Factory during a three week period in December 2012, and is produced by Johnny Hostile / Rodaidh McDonald.
Clocking in at 38 minutes, ‘Silence Yourself’ opens with an excerpt from the John Cassavetes film ‘Opening Night’, and features brand new recordings of ‘Husbands’, ‘I Am Here’ and ‘City’s Full’ - first heard on debut single ‘Husbands / Flying To Berlin’ and the ‘I Am Here’ live EP - both previously released on singer Jehnny Beth’s record label Pop Noire.
First song to be revealed from the album is ‘She Will’, which can be heard right now at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kebq-cENNn0&feature=em-share_video_user
