Although London post-punk agitators Savages have moments where they seethe with primal urgency, they're anything but savages. Hell, the cover of their debut full-length,Silence Yourself, bears a sort of call-to-arms to "recompose ourselves" and at least one concert, they posted a sign that asked fans to "silence your phones," both of which are hardly anarchic. But what we can't argue with is their vivid interpretation of Siouxie-cum-Patti wails and jangly Killing Joke riffs, both of which sound more sincere than most of the early 2000s Brooklyn post-punk bands who ripped the same influences.
