Jesus Christ, Savages just took our head off. The follow up to single ‘The Answer’, the first to be taken from new album Adore Life ‘T.I.W.Y.G’ hits all the right notes with a track that has all the frenetic energy of a pneumatic drill held by a wasp.
Sharp and powerful it pounds across a punk rhythm with an angrily deposited tone from Beth who announces “This is what you get when you mess with love”.
Potency permeates the whole track with furious power only taking a back seat for a small soulful refrain as the song takes a breath and prepares to unleash its final assault.
The song screams that Savages are still as furious and frantic as they once were but with a slightly adapted message.
The aggression is still there but now properly channelled. The band are one of the best things in Britain right now and you’d be hard pressed to disagree.
