Anna B Savage - A Common Turn (Exclusive Dark Blue Vinyl)
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
City Slang is thrilled to announce A Common Turn, the debut album, of London based singer-songwriter Anna B Savage. Personal, honest and highly emotive, it tackles big questions; but most of all, it dares to be vulnerable.
Her 2015 EP was deeply intriguing and quickly drew the attention of Father John Misty and later Jenny Hval, both of whom brought Savage out on European tours. Anna B Savage’s first full-length record is question mark music. Her songs are heavy with unanswered queries, with dilemmas and insecurities, or often just with wondering. Savage’s voice is endlessly warm, but producer William Doyle’ (East India Youth) consistently finds the iron in it. Even the darkest moments in this music don’t stick in their devastation, though – Savage’s fire burns too brightly. Her voice can drop to a whisper, but then it will open all the way up in a flash flood of cavernous guitar, echoes, and swelling strings that expand and then vanish just as suddenly as they arrived.
Savage’s music is deeply vulnerable, without being submissive. She lays claim to her own fragility, and the stories she tells are of taking up space, finding connections, and owning the power in not knowing all the answers. Hers are songs for anyone who thinks hard, feels deeply, and asks big questions.
Produced by William Doyle (East India Youth), A Common Turn presents us a nest of fully-formed and room-filling artistry.
