New Music – Savages, ‘Flying To Berlin’

And here’s my favourite Savages track so far. The flipside to the recently-blogged ‘Husbands’, it’s called ‘Flying To Berlin’ and it reminds me a bit of this by The Slits.

There’s quite a thin-sounding version of the track online already (recorded live, it says) which is charming in it’s raggedness. But really it’s this one – spruced up in the studio and bolstered to the point of tinnitus-level fuckery – which is where it’s really at. If Savages can better it (and I hope they do) they’ll be a really hot prospect.

The single is released on 7-inch in June, but you can also get it online now if you so wish.
