For Savages, it seems, the world is perfectly black and white. Their craft is unconfined, uncompromising. On their new 12” single, ‘Fuckers’, Hassan, Milton and Thompson are led determinedly by Jehnny Beth to bring their anachronistic post-punk to the thinkers like there’s a bloody revolution at stake. 

Directed by Giorgio Testi, ‘Fuckers’ has been released with a companion live video performance. They’ve drawn out the very essence of last year’s excellent Silence Yourself and bound it into 10 minutes’ worth of blistering delirium. The noisy and ringing guitars are relentless and the accompanying visual brings completion in rattling and agitating fashion. “Don’t let the fuckers get you down,” is repeated and twisted, absorbing a different meaning upon each intonation: carefully coaxing a prolonged fury, an endless climax. Savages are a band readily described as dark and remote, but ‘Fuckers’ is their transcendence. The feeling coming out on the other end could only be exultation.
