Savages share debut single

By | Published on Wednesday 23 May 2012


Post-punk femmes Savages have caused a right old internet fuss with news of their debut single, ‘Flying To Berlin/Husbands’, which they’ll self-release on 28 May via singer Jehnny Beth’s label Pop Noire.

You needn’t wait a week to hear B-side ‘Husbands’, because it’s available to preview via this Pitchfork Rising piece, as also includes an interview with the band.

Apparently (or at least, so says Pitchfork) Savages “thrive off of violence and twisted desire”. If you’d like to see that manifest live, you’ll have to be present at one or all of the band’s forthcoming shows. The first of those takes place at London’s Shacklewell Arms on 29 May.
