This is music from an unsigned musical genius in my humble opinion! Among Savages is the stage name of Peter Barbee, a lad who moved to Nashville at 17 to pursue music. But you are more likely to see him performing in the famous underground venues of New York City and Los Angeles than battling it out with the country musicians in Tennessee. Now get that country music out of your mind and make way for some pure electro pop gold. I have been playing Forgive Me Lord on repeat and thought I would share.
His debut record Wanderings of an Illustrative Mind is ‘a personal narrative about the triumphs and trials of youth’, according to a bio. That’s the deep root of the album, but on the surface it is filled with hooks, melodious harmonies, and catchy beats. This is not just another electro/pop/indie artist, whatever you like to call them (I’m not a huge fan of sticking to genres), you only have to listen to the album to realise that. You might have already heard his music on American TV shows and I think it is only a matter of time before we start to hear more from Among Savages. I vote for a UK tour please or at the very least a London show!
