The four women from Savages are based in London, and hiding among them is Jehnny Beth, AKA Camille Berthomier, a French girl known for being the Jehn in John & Jehn. So it is no surprise that their first wild album, Silence Yourself, was released earlier this year on Pop Noire, a record label created by John & Jehn, which has also released work by Lescop. Savages have re-infused rock with edginess and tension, placing themselves at ends with any posing or mischievous tendencies. In France, the UK, and further, people have been seduced by this dark post-punk manifesto written with her friends Gemma Thompson, Ayse Hassan, and Fay Milton. For months now, their live performances have been solicited world wide.
