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.

This Afternoon : SAVAGES on "Ellen"



(photo by Tim)

Those of us who are long in the tooth can remember when a young Ellen DeGeneres was entrusted with propping up the career of contemporary art's 2nd most prominent mercury poisoning victim (Graham Parker being the first), Jeremy Piven.   Of course, Ellen's come an incredibly long way since then, fighting off a strong challenge from Matador office favorite, "Hot Bench", to become the modern day ruler of daytime television.  Tuesday marks yet another highlight in Ellen's afternoon tenure when she welcomes Savages to her syndicated chat show, along with crowd-pleasing star of "Joe Dirt" and "Joe Dirt 2", David Spade.  The program airs at 4pm eastern, but please check your local listings because we cannot be expected to learn the names of every regional broadcaster.  In New York, that's Channel 4 (WNBC), in Los Angeles Channel 4 (KNBC).   Hey, if you live in flyover country, at least the gas is cheaper.
