VIDEO / Savages’ “The Answer”

The premier video from Savage’s upcoming album picks up on the fevered intensity of their sound.

One of the first times seeing Savages, I was with a friend who was dancing very similarly to the people in this video’s audience. Unlike the video, she happened to be the only person who was behaving in that way–leading to a near fist fight in defense of her freedom to enjoy the music however she pleased. The rest of New York City was content to stand perfectly still (as seems to be the sad standard of show-going).

Among a thrashing crowd, “The Answer” explores inherent contradictions in existing and in love. Searching for resolution within yourself and others, admitting uncertainty and grasping onto hope.
