Watch: Savages Release Arty Video For “Husbands”


Savages, the London quartet whose retro post-punk debut, Silence Yourself, was released this past May, have a striking new video for their best song to date, “Husbands.” The video for the song that was inspired by director John Cassavetes’ 1970 film “Husbands,” was directed by John Minton, the Bristol-based filmmaker who previously worked with Portishead. His video for “Husbands” is an arty black and white work that hearkens back to ’60s experimental filmmaking and shows the influence of the late artist Bruce Conner.
