The Upshot: For once, yes, you CAN believe the hype. Onstage the other night at the Metro, they transcended.

If you are one to be wary of “the HYPE”; then don’t buy into it when it come to this band, England’s Savages. Embrace it! The band is touring behind their second album, Adore Life, released in January by Matador (reviewed HERE), flexing their talent and displaying the muscle of confidence. For me it was a unique thrill, of being a fish out of water, flopping around on dry ground, gasping for air, after the set ended and house lights came on. That first gasp of air and the exhilaration from witnessing a band well deserving of said hype.
This thing called rock ‘n’ roll, just might still have some air to it yet.
