Have you ever heard a song on the radio that you fell in love with, but you weren't able to open that shazam app fast enough? The only thing you can do is make a desperate attempt to find a lyric that stands out.
There I was on my break at work, when I heard this song. I retained the word “savages” and I was convinced that was the title of the song. I typed in “savages song 2015” and all that came up was the equally entertaining Marina and the Diamonds song of the same name. Not the one I was looking for.
The group is made of four people. The lead vocalist a gorgeous Bonnie Mckee figure with her pink hair. Anna M'Queen is the only woman in the band, reminiscent of how Blondie was set up, and her vocals vary somewhere in the range of Icona Pop and their style of “I Love It”
Not surprisingly they went on tour together.
Anna lends the band a voice that makes their music more mainstream oriented then similar work done by beleaguered industrial pop artist Black Porcelain. At times her voice even recalls the wailing of The Ting Tings fronted Katie White.
Their debut album is fun. It certainly has a rebellious air to it. The most rateable lyric being “I only want you for your money.” There are certainly improvements that could be made, but as a debut it's solid and strong and most importantly it's fun. A lot of the record plays like cuts from one of Kesha's debut album without the auto tune. "Oblivion" and "Love You To Death" being solid cuts.
Their a dance/pop/rock group for the twenty first century. It seems unlikely that their going to change the face of pop music, but their certainly playing with it's aesthetic, much to their credit.
