Savages Biography & News
About the Savages (Created July 5, 2013)
One would think a post-punk four-piece band from London called the Savages certainly wouldn't be comprised of four women. But that's exactly what this all-female contingent wants to be known as, and the moniker is perfect for their intense sound and blusterous guitars.
Savages formed at the end of 2011 after guitarist Gemma Thompson and singer Camille Berthomier (known as Jehny Beth) settled on a name for their new band. Asye Hassan (bass) and Fay Milton (drums) rounded out the quartet, and the girls performed their first show in January 2012, supporting rockers British Sea Power. Soon after, they picked up by Sigur Ros manager John Best.
The first released tracks from Savages came in the form of a double A-side in June 2012. They were "Flying to Berlin" and "Husbands," and the music was universally hailed by the critics. By the fall, they were playing the CMJ Music Marathon to rave reviews, and by December had been nominated for the BBC Sound of 2013 poll.
Savages' first album, "Silence Yourself," bowed on May 6, 2013 via Beth's label Pop Noire and Matador Records. Again, the project received widespread critical acclaim upon its release. It scored an average of 81 at Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 reviews from the mainstream media. The momentum of a successful release took the band to the Coachella Music and Arts Festival, and they continue to tour through 2013, with sold out dates booked in places like Webster Hall (New York) and the Rock and Roll Hotel in Washington D.C.
