Savages – “Marshal Dear” Video

Savages’ great debut album Silence Yourself ends with “Marshal Dear,” an uncharacteristically slow, thick, heavy gothed-out dirge of a song. It might represent the best use of saxophone and piano on a postpunk track since the Rapture dropped Echoes a decade ago. And now “Marshal Dear” has a video, a scratchily animated meditation on bombs and factories and the industrialization of death. Gergely Wootsch designed and animated the video. It’s below.
