Riff: Savages – “Strife”

May 2, 2013

They wonder how we do it/They ask me if I care/They wonder how come the years/Haven’t sought more lover’s tear

from Strife lyrics by Savages

Building a punk forcefield around the purity of young, careening love, a crunchy guitar swath protects Beth as she gets on the offensive and starts shooting darts at those who haven’t a damn clue what it’s like to put up a heathy fight without sacrificing a heart; [LISTEN].
