Watch Savages Make Intense U.S. Network TV Debut on 'Fallon'

Played "She Will" and "City's Full" from 'Silence Yourself'

Marc Hogan

There's an out-of-time quality to Savages' wiry post-punk, which recalls styles developed in the late '70s and made fashionable again in the early-to-mid '00s, but the London quartet stand out through their fervent live performances and laser-guided songwriting. That onstage urgency was clearly on display last night as the band performed on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, marking their first time on U.S. network television. For the broadcast, they played "She Will" (above), and for online viewers, they did "City's Full." Both are from Essential abum Silence Yourself, and both were as galvanizingly dynamic as they are austerity-era dour.
