The Savage Nomads have a reputation for both their experimentation and eclectic influences which they incorporate into their own music. This is particularly evident in their latest release.
Opening with an aching piano theme and underpinned by a subdued acoustic guitar ‘Tension in the Middle’ slowly unwraps in a hazy hypnotic glow; a heady cocktail. Components of debut album ‘Coloured Clutter’ are mixed with new textures and ideas marking this as a document of their perpetual transition into unchartered territory.

Summer’s here and up and down the UK and beyond bands are hauling themselves through rain, mud, occasional sunshine and irritating TV presenters as another festival season gets in full swing. So with 2011 already careering towards July, it seems like a good time to sit back, take stock of the first six months of the year, and sort through the best of what has been hogging the speakers at Live4ever so far. Is rock n roll music currently in a state of stagnation? Hmm, let’s just say, judge for yourself…

After debut single proper ‘Magic Eye‘ first pricked up Live4ever’s ears last month, whose energy, progression and confident delivery demanded immediate attention, we recently caught up with The Savage Nomads‘ frontman Cole Salewicz as the band celebrates the release of new album ‘Coloured Clutter‘.
We used the opportunity to delve deeper into the origins of the band, to explore what has inspired their far-reaching sound, and to discover what the immediate future holds for the four London teenagers.
For a band that isn’t easy to pigeon hole, it perhaps seems odd to mention outright that the primary feature of The Savage Nomads‘ style is its familiarity. Drawing on such juxtaposed styles as dub, punk, indie-rock, and psychedelia, the London based four piece has neatly crafted a highly competent and unique pop album which leaves its commentators spoiled for references.
