Savages
Silence Yourself
£16.50

Description

The hype which surrounds the London quartet of Savages could make you think that Silence Yourself [2013] is the groups fourth album and not their debut. The excitement is certainly justified though, in placing these women on a post-punk pedestal, as French front-woman Jehnny Beth embodies the vocal traits of the one and only Ian Curtis. Hypnotic rhythms entrance us and atmospheric lyrics transport us in this post-punk revival album. Silence Yourself is not just a re-packaging of Closer or Hit the North however, as the group create visceral images and scenes found on the track I Am Here, adding an imagined visual element to an already diverse and experimental body of artists and music.

Tracklisting

Shut Up
I Am Here
City's Full
Strife
Waiting For A Sign

Product Information

12” black wax LP, whilst not fully weighted, does include an mp3 download so you can bring this record with you wherever you go. You are dictated to by Savages in telling you that “This album is to be played loud in the foreground.” Don't let them down!
