Savages

Silence Yourself (Matador)

A blistering wall of anger, Rat-pedal basstone, head/sex games and Brit buzz-band hype brings Savages crashing onto the shores of North America, sending all the keyboards and Macbooks flying. Led by the deep-voiced Jehnny Beth, the quartet blasts through 10 songs (and one two-minute noise piece) with precision, force and zero sense of humour. “I am a breaker of ocean/leaden like a bullet to the sun,” Beth sings on opener “Shut Up” and Silence Yourself continues on its bullet-like way from there, shooting through notions of what young women with guitars should sound like, sing about and stand for. If Savages could tour with Wild Flag, the world would change. Brace yourself.
