You might know them for delivering the most hypnotic blues around. Their addictive grooves are like alcohol, it gets better every time you taste it. In 2018 The New Savages continue to bring the blues all over Australia with a new drummer, a new single “Brother, I am Your Keeper” and a 45 date national tour from Jan-June. Listen the single up here!
The deep delta blues sounds of Mississippi
The New Savages play Melbourne Hill Country Blues with a whole lot of slide guitar. A few years ago we had the pleasure meeting guitarist and singer Milan Milutinovic in an interview on this site. They bring as they tell in their bio “a very original mix between the deep delta blues sounds of Mississippi, the raw sexuality of The Doors and the storytelling of Johnny Cash”.
Hardest working blues band in Australia
The new Savages are one of the hardest working blues bands in Australia,. If you follow these guys on Facebook or any other social media, you’ll get a good look at all their travels and tours.
“Brother I Am Your Keeper”
As they describe themselves “Brother, I Am Your Keeper” is a modern blues based on the Old Testament story of Cain and Abel. The single came out of a Sunday session at “Cubcave Studios”, a tin shed that producer Damien Sutton built from scratch in his backyard in Coburg, Melbourne.
As with all of their music, this release was recorded as a faithful reproduction of their live sound. This new single marks a step forward in the evolution of Milan’s songwriting, a continuation of his unique ability to inject personal, and poetic storytelling into the archaic folk blues form – all with a solid backbeat that you can dance to.
