Savages

The post-punk four-piece Savages recall the tenacity and more artistic movements of London's punk heyday with their blistering sound and noisy guitars. Hailing from the English capital, they formed at the end of 2011 after guitarist Gemma Thompson and singer Jehnny Beth set to work on writing songs under the name of Savages. Ayse Hassan joined on bass and Fay Milton on drums, before their first show in January 2012 with British Sea Power.

They were then picked up by Sigur Rós manager John Best and released a double-A-side single ‘Flying to Berlin/Husbands’ through Pop Noire. The single attracted attention from various music publications, where they were favorably compared to luminaries Public Image, Siouxsie and the Banshees or PJ Harvey.

‘I Am Here’ was released in 2012 and Savages partnered with Matador Records to release their debut album ‘Silence Yourself’ in May 2013. The band followed it up with their 2016 release ‘Adore Life’, which drew comparison to Swans, Soundgarden and once again, PJ Harvey. Alongside recording this second record, frontwoman Jehnny Beth recorded with Julian Casablancas and they covered Eagles of Death Metal in the wake of the November 2015 Paris terror attacks.

Pop Noire is an independent record label based in Paris, founded in 2011 by artists duo Johnny Hostile and Jehnny Beth, and artistic director Antoine Carlier with the desire to develop bespoke projects.
It all started in London with a punk and DIY philosophy as the duo John & Jehn was composing and recording in the basement of their home, while the back room was transformed into a makeshift office, stocked to the brim with records.

Pop Noire quickly got noticed and established its uncompromising reputation on an international scale with Lescop’s lunar and captivating ‘La Forêt’ or Savages’ burning ‘Shut up’.
The projects mainly build around Johnny Hostile and Jehnny Beth, but the house also opens to other artists as the New-Zealand duo A Dead Forest Index.
In 2017, Pop Noire joined forces with production company Walter Films founder, Xavier Arias. The label explores new aesthetics such as electronic and experimental music, with the signature of French young composer Cirrial and the release of Johnny Hostile’s ambient debut album.

Pop Noire is an artists’ house which produces and develops projects in line with its identity: independent, radical and exploratory.
