Erik & The Worldly Savages’
“Take Me Away”
Folk Punk anthem with Belgrade, Serbia’s strange characters and mysterious vibe
Erik & The Worldly Savages’ new video “Take Me Away” transports you to Belgrade, Serbia and a mystical world featuring gypsy children, a Muslim funeral, teenagers drinking and old people furiously dancing while waiting to die (to name a few elements).
The mystery and magic of the city of Belgrade, Serbia captured Toronto-born singer Erik’s Mut passion and for nearly a decade he calls the city his home, using its contrasts and characters to fuel his inspiration for the ultra-danceable yet insightful and cathartic Post-Balkan Folk Punk anthems he plays with his band THE WORLDLY SAVAGES.
Take Me Away, serving as the final track for the new album CULTURE VS. DESTINY, is the majestic pinnacle of Mut’s Folk Punk odyssey, with driving, contagious rhythms, screaming melodic lines and intimate moments while Erik’s reassuringly crazed voice howls tales of escapism and self-destruction.
The video for “Take Me Away” showcases the city Erik feels so passionate about.
Mut captures Belgrade through his own eyes. Self-directed and edited from bits of footage wandering around the city throughout many seasons, collecting soulful moments to broadcast the vibe of Belgrade to the world.
ERIK & THE WORLDLY SAVAGES will tour the UK in August 2017, with a headlining spot on the Old Town Main Stage at Boomtown Festival (August 11th) and gigs at Jamboree in Limehouse , East London (August 12th) and Hootananny’s in Brixton (August 19th).
CULTURE VS. DESTINY will be released in later this summer.
