Savages debut recording 'intense'

Savages will tour the UK in May

Savages star Jehnny Beth has said recording the band's debut album was an "intense" experience.

The post-punk four-piece, who recently performed at the Coachella Festival in California, are releasing their debut album after performing their first gig together just last year.

Jehnny said of making the album: "It was three weeks in the studio with only one day off, so it was quite intense... It was very focused too, and for that time, the outside world was non-existent.

The singer added: "It's very absorbing, but you can only do that when you don't have anything or anyone else to occupy you. It was a luxury to be able to do it, but it's a luxury we have... We put in as much effort as we do when we play live."

:: Savages begin a UK tour on May 1 and release their debut album Silence Yourself on May 6.

Stuffy rules and regulations are stopping a large amount of people from accessing resources and services. It's up to you to sound the alarm. When the powers that be realise you mean business, they'll work hard to update the regulations. You'll make several new friends after getting involved with this cause.More
