There are very few bands who give off the level of powerfully dark vibes that Savages emit whenever they’re onstage, and even their TV performances have a serious presence to them. The band released their heavy sophomore album Adore Life earlier this year. And last night, they were on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert to play “Adore,” the album’s slow-burning single. On the show, they let the song build carefully and deliberately, and frontwoman Jehnny Beth stared hard enough at the camera to snatch your soul away. Watch the performance below.
Adore Life is out now on Matador.
