O vídeo que as Savages vieram gravar a Lisboa no início deste mês está pronto e online juntamente com o anúncio do lançamento de Adore Life, o já anunciado e altamente aguardado segundo disco da banda londrina e mais uma vez com o selo da Matador.
“The Answer” foi a música escolhida para dar início a mais este capítulo na história das Savages. Um tema que reflecte em termos líricos e sonoros as temáticas e ideologias inerentes ao manifesto que aí vem. Um manifesto proactivo em tempos que pedem e clamam por uma mudança, por revoluções interiores virais aos espaços circundantes. Ou dando a palavra a quem de direito,
It’s about change and the power to change. It’s about metamorphosis and evolution. It’s about sticking to your guns and toughing it out. It’s about now, not tomorrow. It’s about recognizing your potential. It’s about self-doubt and inaction. It’s about you. It’s about me. It’s about you and me and the others. It’s about the choices we make. It’s about finding the poetry and avoiding the cliché. It’s about being the solution, not the problem. It’s about showing weakness to be strong. It’s about digging through your dirt to look for diamonds. It’s about claiming your right to think unacceptable thoughts. It’s about boredom and the things we do to drive it away. It’s about being on your own so you can be with people. It’s about knowing what it means to be human and what it might mean one day. It’s about the parts and the sum of the parts. It’s about the music and the message: together, one and the same. It’s about bass, guitars, drums and vocals. It’s about opening-out and never, ever dying. But most of all it’s about love, every kind of love. Love is the answer.
Adore Life foi gravado em Londres por Johnny Hostile (metade da Pop Noire Records juntamente com Jehnny Beth) e misturado em terras do norte pela mestria de Trentemøller.
Em relação ao vídeo gravado no Village Underground em Lisboa a banda diz-nos que,
We’ve observed our audience all around the world and noticed that something is happening. People want to be pushed to do good, or to be good, or just to feel good. We wanted a very intense video, that felt like banging your head against the wall, focusing on our audience: a portrait of our crowd, an homage to music lovers and the good people who are coming to gigs and shouting their lungs out, or just smiling at the back. We were touched by them every night, and wanted to get their message out there: loud guitar music is still alive and still connects people.
