7digital What we said: Formed little more than 18 months ago by Jehnny Beth and Gemma Thompson, this London-based quartet are already acclaimed as one of the most exhilarating live acts about. The question is, will Savages’ minimalistic post-punk be as arresting if they’re not on hand to give you an eyeballing? It’s credit to Daughter-producer Rodaidh McDonald and Beth’s former-bandmate Johnny Hostile that the answer is a resounding yes: the pair of them have captured the rumbling bass lines, punishing percussion, chugging guitars and Beth’s Siouxsie Sioux-meets-Ian Curtis vocals in all their ferocity, resulting in a debut album that’s economic, confident and intense. Or, as Thompson put it in a recent interview, “It’s music to break sh*t and f*ck on the floor to.” Quite.
