#44: Savages – Adore

 

One of the most arresting videos of the year and one of the clearest declarations of hope and defiance in a year that needed it came from London quartet Savages. The centrepiece of their second album ‘Adore Life’ from back in January, it became a stunning finale to their 2016 live shows too. Their set at Manchester’s Albert Hall with the equally brilliant Bo Ningen might be my live music highlight of the year. Not many of their British guitar band contemporaries can keep pace with Savages at the moment.
