“Dread-fueled, post-punk angst tempered with catchy hooks.” MAGNET
SAVAK have shared their latest single “Its Mutual” from their new album Rotting Teeth In The Horse’s Mouth – out 10th April on Ernest Jenning Record Co. Pre-order HERE
Recorded in SAVAK’s Gowanus, Brooklyn studio, core SAVAK members and principal songwriters Michael “Jaws” Jaworski and Sohrab Habibion direct you into their headspace with a fiery pool of propulsive rhythms helmed by drummer Matt Schulz that shake in your blood and seep through your most permeable pores. The album also features contributions from Scott McCloud (Girls Against Boys, Paramount Styles),Michael Hampton (The Faith, One Last Wish, Fake Names) and Radio 4’s Anthony Roman.
“It’s Mutual” is a propulsive and dissonant middle finger to employers who take advantage of their workers with little regard for them as people, often times expressed in a deficiency of real wages and dignity” explains Jaworski. “The lack of humanity is appalling, and it’s hard to not feel like it’s mutual towards said employers. Also a look at modern era anxieties and the challenge of living in a world where inflated self-worth on social media and shit-talking is prized over humility and sincerity.”
We’re finally in a decade we only thought existed in the distance of dystopian science-fiction, faced with a waning optimism overcome by the burdening weight of pessimism. Rotting Teeth In The Horse’s Mouth shows truths about our delusions in the decay of democracy, but the songs also invoke dreams for the daughters of the future. There’s no better time than now to welcome the arrival of an album that addresses a lot of the American anxieties which have been bubbling in our collective conscience.
The band have already shared the first album single “Listening” (ft. backing vocals from Scott McCloud).
Formed in 2015 by members of The Obits, Holy Fuck, and The Cops, SAVAK are broadcasting shared sentiments that we feel when we hear – all the more illuminating during this dark and tumultuous timeline. It’s a call to action for ourselves and for each other.
