The Savage Nomads’ latest effort ‘Pinkie’s Little Light’ is the result of an invitation from Fugazi to go and record in NYC – and they’ve done a damned good job of it, too! With a catchy, intricate melody and assured vocal (evocative of Spector’s Fred Macpherson at points), this track is a worthy investment indeed. Josh & Benjy Miles’ guitar hooks blend seamlessly with Tom Williams’ bass and Louis Lacoste’s drumming to create a full bodied anthem – an accolade that isn’t awarded lightly!
As frontman Cole Salewicz draws out syllables the listener is forced to chew on what is truly an intelligent lyrical, finding themselves thoroughly enjoying the audible experience. With aspects of A-ha, Bloc Party and The Crookes audible there’s bound to be something for everyone to latch onto and love in ‘Pinkie’s Little Light’.
