intriguing and quickly drew the attention of Father John Misty and later Jenny Hval, both of whom brought Savage out on European
Anna B Savage’s first full-length record ‘A Common Turn’ 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.
