“Superior twin-guitar slash action.” – Mojo
SAVAK is excited to share the video for “Christo’s Peers (Soon We’ll Be Floating)” from their sophomore album Cut-Ups, out now on Ernest Jenning Record Co. The video premiered via Clash, who called the track “all nagging riffs and wiry, politico-existential angst that give way to the sort of moreish chorus that gets doe-eyed punk kids reaching for the needle (or the repeat button) for another hit.”
The band — which includes members of Obits, Holy Fuck, The Cops, The Make Up and more – is about to embark on a UK tour with Grey Hairs. Current tour dates can be found below.
Cut-Ups was produced by the band and Geoff Sanoff (Nada Surf, Luna, Jets To Brazil) at Renegade Studios in New York City with additional recording done by the band at their Brooklyn practice space and homes. This is an album for listeners who don’t seek authenticity, but intuitively know it when they hear it; for people who are interested in language and sound. This is not lifestyle marketing. This is not going to cover your bald spot or shrink your waistband. This is not this year’s model. Or last year’s model dressed up as tomorrow’s hope. This is the sound of four adult men in Brooklyn, New York, sharing their world as they see it. They are not afraid to write about politics or personal failings. They are not afraid to celebrate love. Or yearn for a better world. They may be cut up, but they are here to stay.
For those who need references, the band suggests Neu!, The Gun Club, Agent Orange, The Fall, Magazine, Love, Mission of Burma, Gang of Four, The Byrds, Television and dub music, spy movie soundtracks, international folk music, free jazz, spoken word, comedy, food, travel, books, and just trying to sustain humanity in an increasingly hostile world.
