With the kind of urgent, twitchy bassline that’s like the neurotic output of a riot grrl Joy Division, Savages’ forthcoming single begins in visceral form before transforming into some kind of musical mental breakdown. As singer Jehnny Beth yelps “My house, my bed, my HUSBANDS!” we’re not sure whether to be terrified or aroused.
