My review of Berlin Festival 2013 over at Clash Magazine:

Savages ensure that disappointment from White Lies’ set doesn’t linger by bringing their spectral brand of gothic post-punk to Berlin, on the Pitchfork Stage. Clad in black and wreathed in shadowy clouds of dry ice, theirs is the standout performance of the festival. Vocalist Jehnny Beth mesmerises the crowd as she whispers, wails and yelps her way through proceedings, sounding like some gorgeous unholy love child of Ian Curtis and Siouxsie Sioux. The highlight is the screeching atmospherics of the perfectly contextual track ‘Flying To Berlin’…”
