Amoeba Review

10/29/2012

It’s a ballsy move to release a four-song live EP before your first full-length album comes out — leave it to all-female post-punk group Savages to pull it off. On the strength of their live shows and first double A-side, “Flying to Berlin/Husbands,” the group has garnered substantial hype to justify this release, and for anyone who hasn’t gotten to see the London band live or experience more than just those two excellent songs, this release, recorded live in Nottingham and Bristol, is a treat. “City’s Full” erupts with spacey, metallic disco. “Give Me a Gun” sounds a bit like the late, great Electrelane with more muscle, updating the punk-funk sound of bands like ESG and Delta 5 with visceral attack. But the song also features an extended spacey passage breaking up the sound, before frothing over with noise again. Singer Jenny Beth’s voice gets high and insistent on “I Am Here,” and the set ends with a tear through “Husbands,” showing how the song’s desperation spills over live. It’s a powerful opening statement for a band just warming up.
