Listen: Anna B Savage - "1"

19 February 2015, 18:12 | Written by Laurence Day

London-based singer-songwriter Anna B Savage has unfurled her debut song, "1".

Mixing her emotion-heavy vocals with gently fluttering guitars, Savage lets us into her world. "1" is a tender, understated ballad, for the most part, that relies on her interplay with vox + axe, her lyrical gravitas, and sincerity, but towards the end we're rewarded with a cathartic eruption of fuzzy rock noise.

Speaking to the FADER, Savage explained the track:

"It's about the frustrating ricocheting quality of our internal dialogue... not a Zach Braff in Scrubs internal dialogue, but one that's more sturdy in its absolute inability to process stuff and come to a good, moral end-note. It's not an overtly political song, but for me there is that edge to it, and it's not just because I say that I'm a feminist."
