England - Full Moon 206 - 06/23/13
Savages have been making waves with their spiky modern take on new wave music. Their debut is a sharp affair, singer Jehnny Beth dominating with her strong vocals.
"Shut up" is a strong opener, the four piece playing a very persuasive number at full tilt. "City's Full" is another rockin' song that sees them firing on all cylinders.
"Waiting for a Sign" is a somewhat softer song that shows off a different side of the band without losing any of their edge. Beth's vocals are as strong as ever.
"Husbands" is full of bright hard anger and feels as acute as anything else on this fiery debut. It's a powerful record that points to a bright future for the band.
