The London based all-female post-punk band Savages, arrived on the scene in 2013 with a fury. The ladies released their much-anticipated full-length debut Silence Yourself to critical acclaim. The band’s vibe has been compared to and influenced by the likes of Joy Division, Bauhaus, and Siouxsie and The Banshees. Their no-nonsense, intense, in your face approach, is as fresh as anything the post-punk revival has to offer today.
The four-piece has written a series of Manifestos that appear in the Words page on their official website. The group’s intentions are summed up below:
SAVAGES MANIFESTO #1
SAVAGES’ INTENTION IS TO CREATE A SOUND, INDESTRUCTIBLE, MUSICALLY SOLID, WRITTEN FOR THE STAGE AND DESIGNED WITH ENOUGH NUANCES TO PROVIDE A WIDE RANGE OF EMOTIONS. SAVAGES ARE A SELF-AFFIRMING VOICE TO HELP EXPERIENCE OUR GIRLFRIENDS DIFFERENTLY, OUR HUSBANDS, OUR JOBS, OUR EROTIC LIFE, AND THE PLACE MUSIC OCCUPIES INTO OUR LIVES. SAVAGES’ SONGS AIM TO REMIND US THAT HUMAN BEINGS HAVEN’T EVOLVED SO MUCH, THAT MUSIC CAN STILL BE STRAIGHT TO THE POINT, EFFICIENT AND EXCITING.
