Savage Nomads are surrounded by Coloured Clutter

Having received support for the Martin Rushent produced EP What The Angel Said from Gideon Coe, Don Letts (6 Music), Gary Crowley (BBC London), Alex Baker (Kerrang! Radio), Gavin Martin (Daily Mirror) & many others, London band The Savage Nomads are yet again upon us with the release of their debut album Coloured Clutter and the single The Magic Eye.

The Magic Eye, whose hypnotic tribal rhythms and deep vocal chants are reminiscent of classic cuts by bands like Television and others, was mixed by Mike Crossley (Foals / Arctic Monkeys) and is a great example of the band’s constantly evolving style and a good introduction to their 13 track LP Coloured Clutter.

The album Coloured Clutter opens with The Statement – a brief flash of instrumentation that guides the listener into The Shamanic Verses whose semi-rapped verse breaks into seductive chorus vocal lines with an atmospheric guitar and keys backdrop. Next up is a new version of What the Angel Said (from the previous EP), with Joe Gillick’s rock guitar arrangement underpinned by powerful drumming from Billy Boone and group vocal chants in the chorus.

Subsides the Shakes follows with its offbeat structured guitar lines that blend well with tribal beats supporting Cole Salewicz’s uncompromising narrative.

Next up A Dire Love with its multifaceted drum arrangement comes in two versions, the second of which features rapper Seanie T known for his work with Roots Manuva.

Later in the album, track Eternal Elizabeth adds further depth to The Nomads’ repertoire before waltzing gently into the live favourite An Empty Seat, which opens with a Nevermind style bassline from bass player Josh Moles that grows with every vocal build and music crescendo.

With this debut album release The Savage Nomads have pulled off a killer blow that would have other aspiring bands in this day and age green with envy. Check it out for yourself
