Riff: Savages – “Husbands”

May 2, 2013

Oh God I wanna get rid of it it it/My house/My bed/My husbands, husbands, husbands

from Husbands lyrics by Savages

The last in a series of B-Side froths, Beth and the Savages grrrls take aim at holy matrimony, and the death of a relationship. Though it could also be a nightmarish haunt of something metaphysical, tapped from the vein of punk’s most cathartic, angry roots. Either way, it’s invigorating; [LISTEN].
