Savages have finally announced the release of their first single, ‘Flying to Berlin / Husbands‘ through the Pop Noire label. Available as a download on 28 May, it’ll also appear as limited 7″ later in June.
“For Savages the intention was to create a sound, indestructible and musically solid, written for the stage, designed with enough nuances to provide a wide range of emotions. The songs aim to remind us that human beings haven’t evolved so much, that music can still be straight to the point, efficient and exciting.” – Gemma Thompson
