Live Review: Savages at The Imperial, Vancouver

There's something about catching a band at that quintessential moment in their rise where the band is firing on all cylinders and touring what years down the road, will be looked at as a benchmark album in the genre. London-based post-punk outfit, Savages are having a red-letter year. Their second album Adore Life is a brilliant noire-noise record that demands attention. The four piece has tapped in to the secret of stirring up a bombastic hurricane of sound greater than the sum of its parts. Soaring over the frenzy like a hawk is their enigmatic figurehead, Jehnny Beth. The French singer is as natural a front-person as any with a demeanour that doesn't plead for attention, it captivates out of the virtue of her shear vocal power.
