MU­SIC TO OUR EARS

WE’RE FOR GIRLS – ES­PE­CIALLY THIS TAL­ENTED LOT.

GQ (Australia) - - THE SOURCE -

All-fe­male post-punk out­fit Sav­ages’ sec­ond al­bum drops this month – and it lands with a bang. On Adore Life, the UK four-piece brings the noise with a heavy dose of poetry, erotics and fem­i­nine sen­su­al­ity – along­side heav­ing rhythms, roar­ing vo­cals and gui­tars that rightly groan with emo­tion. Yep, we’re fans. Avail­able Jan­uary 22. sav­ages­band.com

Nineties leg­ends SleaterKin­ney, who made a cel­e­brated come­back with last year’s No Cities To Love, re­turn here in March. So con­sider this a warn­ing to start buy­ing, beg­ging, or bar­ter­ing your way into the show. In Aus­tralia for Golden Plains Fes­ti­val, the riot-grrrl three-piece, that in­cludes Port­landia funny woman, au­thor and guitarist Car­rie Brown­stein, are a must to see live. Perth, Mar 2; Ade­laide, Mar 4; Brisbane, Mar 5; Sydney, Mar 6; Mel­bourne, Mar 9-11; sleater-kin­ney.com

With her dark-tinged lyrics and an­drog­y­nous, bass-heavy noir pop sound, once you re­alise Eliot Sum­ner’s fa­ther is Sting, The Po­lice com­par­isons be­come in­evitable and the in­flu­ence ob­vi­ous. Drop­ping the first LP to use her real name (she pre­vi­ously per­formed as I Blame Coco), this 25-yearold is the cool chalk to pop’s cur­rent cheese. Avail­able Jan­uary 22.
