Savages have been on everyone’s “must see new band” list lately and there’s a definite reason why. They play dark moody indie rock that oozes ambiance and swagger. This was the first time back in New York for the London based band since their nine show run in early 2015, this time moving up to Irving Plaza (which they played the night before) followed by this show at The Warsaw in Brooklyn.
There was such a great vibe, definitely one of my favorite shows in a long time, plus we even made it home just in time to catch their performance on The Late Show. They played 18 songs total, which included a majority of the material from 2013’s “Silence Yourself” and their most recent, “Adore Life”. Full set list and photos below. The show opened with an experimental electronic/live percussion set by Brooklyn based Australian native Angus Tarnawsky.
