Single Review – Savages – The Answer

The wonderfully aggressive and abrasive Savages have announced their return with a new single ‘The Answer’ which is to come from their impending second album Adore Life. The new track sees the London based quartet continue with their punk riffs reverberating around the crashing percussion and Jehnny Beth’s alert and siren-like vocals sing in a detached fashion from the musical forms around her and the vocals act almost as a counter melody to the music. Both the vocals and instrumentation remain unrelenting in dragging you through the song’s progression. One key point here is the more washed out effects over the guitars which is the main shift away from the isolated sounds of their debut Silence Yourself which was one of the highlights of 2013. The jury is still out on whether their second attempt on January 22nd will be as prominent.
