Review: Anna B Savage- These Dreams EP

Sharp shards of guitar introduce the brand new EP from acclaimed singer songwriter Anna B Savage.

These Dreams is a litany of accusations (but to whom?) over brutal, staccato barbs, while Savage’s extraordinary voice, both operatic and soulful, solidifies the sound against waves of keyboard. It’s a more experimental path from the young London- based artist, cementing her reputation as an uncompromising and singular presence.

Hairier Now is incredibly personal and intense, a bare bones synthy showcase for her exceptional, climbing vocals which seems caught between kisses and kiss-offs.

Since We Broke Up may fearure a simply strummed guitar, but it’s stark and minimal. Then, it unexpectedly U turns into a twinkling synth pop gem, the kind of thing Perfume Genius would sell his sequins for.

Her cover of Edwyn Collins’ A Girl Like You is wonderful- definitely a shade of Angelo Baladamenti in its Lynchian, torch song sexiness. That’s how you make a cover version your own

She’s pyrotechnic, endlessly soaring against the dreary skies of countless indie bands.

Out on September 24th via City Slang
