Biography

It’s about change and the power to change. It’s about metamorphosis and evolution. It’s about sticking to your guns and toughing it out. It’s about now, not tomorrow. It’s about recognizing your potential. It’s about self-doubt and inaction. It’s about you. It’s about me. It’s about you and me and the others. It’s about the choices we make. It’s about finding the poetry and avoiding the cliché. It’s about being the solution, not the problem. It’s about showing weakness to be strong. It’s about digging through your dirt to look for diamonds. It's about claiming your right to think unacceptable thoughts. It’s about boredom and the things we do to drive it away. It’s about being on your own so you can be with people. It’s about knowing what it means to be human and what it might mean one day. It’s about the parts and the sum of the parts. It's about the music and the message: together, one and the same. It’s about bass, guitars, drums, and vocals. It’s about opening-out and never, ever dying. But most of all it’s about love, every kind of love. Love is the answer.

Savages’ second album, Adore Life, was recorded at RAK Studios, London in April 2015.  Johnny Hostile was the producer and Richard Woodcraft the engineer. Anders Trentemøller took care of the mixing in Copenhagen.   

All songs were written and played by Savages – Ay?e Hassan (bass), Fay Milton (drums), Gemma Thompson (guitar), Jehnny Beth (vocals).  Lyrics by Jehnny Beth.

VIDEO : Savages - "The Answer" and "Adore", from Wednesday's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

We're a day away from the official release of Savages' wildly acclaimed 2nd album, 'Adore Life', and last night the band performed "The Answer" and "Adore Life"  for ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live". Though the latter performance wasn't shown in full on the broadcast, incredibly cool modern persons like yourself have already seen it on your smartphones during this morning's jetpack commute. That said, we're sure you'd like to watch both again, free of distractions.
