Riff: Savages – “Waiting for a Sign”

May 2, 2013

You don’t like their manners/You don’t like their face/You turn yourself away/From the man who madly drinks/Now you find your nights deeper/Without anyone else/Without anyone else around

from Waiting for a Sign lyrics by Savages

Silence Yourself‘s token slow-burner finds Jehnny Beth get her Patti Smith on, as the rest of the grrrl crew swirl the feedback and snare-snap cauldron, so Beth can wrestle out visions of different kinds of love, even the kind that comes with the darkness of the night and only one soul; [LISTEN].
