Savages, a female Post-Punk group, formed in London. Vocalist Jehnny Beth, inspired by books like Lord of the Flies, originated the moniker.
The group's live performances, which New Musical Express called "frottage-inducingly intense affairs," got the group noticed.
They released their debut single "Flying To Berlin" b/w "Husbands" in '12. The Guardian, the daily Manchester newspaper, was quick to compare Savages to the likes of Public Image Ltd, Siouxsie & The Banshees and Joy Division.
Savages full-length debut, "Silence Yourself," was released in '13 on Beth's own label Pop Noire and Matador Records.
The song "Husbands" was featured during the end credits of the '15 science fiction film Ex Machina, which was released prior to the Savages' sophomore album, "Adore Life."
