Riff: Savages – “She Will”

May 2, 2013

She will forget her pain/She will come back again/Get hooked on loving hard/Forcing the slut out

from She Will lyrics by Savages

Leading side B with the same fury met on side A’s “Shut Up” thrasher, the Silence Yourself ethos comes to a boil here as Jehnny Beth channels a seizing Ian Curtis to nail an I Am Woman screed to your heart, the Savages crew riding right behind her with a Tokyo speed train constant pound; [LISTEN].
