Today is an enormous day for Pop Noire. We are delighted to announce that we have teamed up with Matador Records to release the much-anticipated debut album by SAVAGES on 6th May 2013.
The album was recorded in north-west London’s Fish Factory during a three week period in December 2012, and is produced by Johnny Hostile / Rodaidh McDonald.
Clocking in at 38 minutes, Silence Yourself opens with an excerpt from the John Cassavetes film ‘Opening Night’, and features brand new recordings of ‘Husbands’, ‘I Am Here’ and ‘City’s Full’ – first heard on debut single ‘Husbands / Flying To Berlin’ and the ‘I Am Here’ live EP – both previously released by us here at Pop Noire.
First song to be revealed from the album is ‘She Will’, which can be heard below.
The album will be available to pre-order from iTunes from Tuesday 19th at midnight, and fans who do so will instantly receive an mp3 download of ‘She Will’. Physical copies of the album will also be sold through our Pop Noire store and will be available on CD and vinyl.
The album comprises eleven tracks that are uncompromising and delivered with fierce conviction.

A1 Shut Up
A2 I Am Here
A3 City’s Full
A5 Waiting For A Sign
B1 Dead Nature
B2 She Will
B3 No Face

Wonderland Magazine have featured our little record label into their next publication. The article explains the birth of the label, the ideas, ethos and people behind it and, most importantly, the music.
We are very proud to see our entire roster, John & Jehn, LESCOP and SAVAGES, get a mention in this article as it has been a very productive, yet hardworking, year for all of the Pop Noire family.
Have a look at the cuttings below for a preview of what is to come. We can’t wait to get our hands on a physical copy!
A couple of weeks ago the label hosted their first night at the London venue The Shaklewell Arms. The night has been a big success and featured performances by the promising newcomer band SAVAGES and Pop Noire’s own LESCOP, which gave his debut performance in the UK that night.
Thanks to all who came and made it a very special night for everyone.
For those who could not make it, watch SAVAGES perform their song ‘City’s Full’. Also check out this nice review by Miss Bettenoir.
