Riff: Savages – “I Am Here”

May 2, 2013

I am here/No more fear/No more dark shadows/Let it come/Let me talk to you/See the face of your future/I don’t wanna hide/Hear it calling you

from I Am Here lyrics by Savages

As acerbic and sorcerer-cleric as Jehnny Beth can command a frontwoman mic, there’s something meditatively simple about “I Am Here.” The energy is midnight motorcycle hellish with feedback bookends and a sinewy rhythm. But the mantra is buddhist: “This is easy/This is not hard,” assures Beth.
