Adore Life Is Out On January 22 Via Matador Records.
London based post-punk revival quartet Savages have shared the video for their intense and brooding new track ‘Adore’. The video, which was directed by Anders Malmberg with lighting and concept design by Tobias Rylander begins with singer Jenny Beth looking around seeming unsure before peering straight into the gaze of the viewer. The video mostly focuses on Beth and her intense performance, her gripping stare and impassioned performance comparable to Sinead O’Conner’s video for ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’.
The track itself is a powerful and sultry offering. The manner in which it builds is akin to a tiger stalking its prey. A slow and measured approach is brought to an intense and sudden stop as Beth intones ‘I adore life!’ This is Savages at perhaps their most life affirming, reminding the listener that they may die tomorrow and so need to cherish their fleeting moments in this life.
