Savages "Strife" (video)
Published Jan 17, 2014Still riding high from their 2013 breakthrough Silence Yourself, UK post-punks Savages have shared a video for album track "Strife."
The stark, black-and-white clip appears to feature a calming walk along the beach, though the band's jarring rock should serve as a hint that this one has a more sinister undertone.
UPDATE: The band have now explained that the video is inspired by Albert Camus's 1942 novel The Stranger (a.k.a. The Outsider). In a statement singer Jehnny Beth explains, "We wanted to make a video that focused on a timeless human physicality and physical expression, a search for understanding through the movement, action and reaction of two characters. We chose the classical landscape of the empty beach. A fight ensues between two men: one older, one younger; a tragic outcome, and death."
