Single Review – Savages – Adore


The new single from London based Post Punk quartet Savages; ‘Adore’ is just ahead of the January 22nd release of their second studio album Adore Life. The two previous singles from the aforementioned album have seen them as aggressive and purposeful as ever, but with delivering a sharper sound and some rhythmic variations as was the case with ‘T.I.W.Y.G’. ‘Adore’ sees them take it down a notch and deliver a dark and melancholy tune. The slow twitching of the bass and strong reverberating echo of the guitars. Through this emerges Jehnny Beth’s distinctive, melodic roar as the notes rise, but retaining a composed and eerily gentle tone through most of the song. The simplistic nature of the song and the arrangement makes the lyrics of human vulnerability ring out in an emphatic fashion. Beyond that, the song is a beautiful work for it’s minimalism and the understated power running through it.
