Dead Nature

Album: Silence Yourself (2013)


  • Savages bassist Ayse Hassan told Coup De Main magazine about this clanging, atmospheric instrumental: "It's quite interesting because when we actually recorded 'Dead Nature' it was just us with a hanging guitar going through effects pedals and just smashing it around and making beats, or trying to add different sounds to that track," she said. "For me it's slightly quite haunting, and I think that it can be just as powerful as a song with lyrics or that's structured. What I quite like is that it follows no pattern - that recording is just how it was at that time. It captures something that wasn't necessarily planned, which I quite like."
