You have to see them live. The CD, though good, doesn't do justice whatsoever.

Played Emo's 4/12/16 -- AMAZING show!!!

The Music CD was okay – but not one of my favorites.

This all-female English quartet have delivered what may be the debut album of the year: intense, dark and ferocious. For fans of Joy Division, Siouxsie and British post-punk. Excellent.

This album ROCKS! The best new band I've heard in a long time! I admit, their style of music (tension filled post-punk) is one of my favorite sounds, so I may be biased, but these 4 London ladies have got something going on. Check it out.

Santa Monica Staff Jan 04, 2014

At 11 tracks in 38 minutes, the full-length debut by this London band of women is a constant, compact fury: Emotional confrontation and sexual vengeance executed with martial discipline, at mostly blinding speed. Savages do not write songs as such. “I Am Here,” “No Face” and “Husbands” are stark whirls of one-sided argument, with Jehnny Beth shooting across the turbulence – Ayse Hassan’s grunting bass, Gemma Thompson’s scorched-treble guitar – in a pagan-priestess wail. The precedent is clear: Eighties post-punk, particularly the bony-riff geometry and dublike shadows of Killing Joke and early Siouxsie and the Banshees. So is the freshened, visceral impact.
