Savages released their debut record, Silence Yourself, in May of last year, but the UK post-punks are still rolling out new videos. This time around, the song getting the visual treatment is “Strife” from the aforementioned, Silence Yourself. The video was inspired by Alberts Camus’ 1942 novel The Stranger.
This is what singer Jehnny Beth had to say about the video:
“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.”
