That said, the just-released video for “Husbands” — a relentless standout from Savages’ Mercury Prize-nominated debut album, Silence Yourself — is still plenty unsettling. Directed by John Minton, the short cuts together static-y footage of the band’s intense live show with close-up shots of maggots, worms, and volcanic imagery.
