The London-based female quartet burst onto the music scene earlier this year with the release of their debut album Silence Yourself. Together, frontwoman Jehnny Beth, guitarist Gemma Thompson, bassist Ayse Hassan, and drummer Fay Milton tackle such themes as sexuality and abuse with abrasive realness that's hard to ignore. Silence Yourself's raw energy becomes all the more palpable in the live setting where Savages' "muscular bass riffs, frenetic drumming, impassioned vocals, and angular guitars" command undivided attention.
