Watch: Savages Premiere Music Video For "Strife"

London post-punk band Savages have premiered the video for "Strife", another cut taken from their debut full-length 'Silence Yourself', released in May last year via Pop Noire Records.

The video was directed by French director Antoine Carlier (co-founder of Pop Noire with Jehnny Beth), who filmed the scene with a modern black & white aesthetic on the beaches of Gironde in South-West France. The film is a play on human instincts and desire for survival, echoing the famous beach murder scene in the novel 'The Stranger' by Albert Camus.

"We wanted to make a video that focused on a timeless human physicality and physical expression, a search for understanding through the movement, action and reaction of two characters. We chose the classical landscape of the empty beach. A fight ensues between two men: one older, one younger; a tragic outcome, and death."
