We’ve been teased by this project for a while. Playing what seems like hundreds of live shows in Toronto over the past couple month’s, Zoo Owl has become quite a fixture in the city’s music scene. Finally, the project (Bryan from OPOPO and Saturns) has a single to spread his Owly word, and it doesn’t disappoint. We’ve heard it described as a less pretentious Doldrums before, and we gotta say that’s very accurate. This is a sound made for dance floors and awesome house parties.
Soaring electro-folk from Toronto’s Omhouse, produced for the upcoming Long Winter, Fucked Up’s amazing monthly showcase at the Great Hall. From a double A-side 7″ with Milk Lines, 350 of which will be given away for free on a first-come-first-serve basis.
The next Long Winter is on December 13th in Toronto.
Devon Welsh said the following about the song:
“Savage” is a song we have been playing live for most of 2013. Many people have asked me on Tumblr and Twitter what this song is called and when it will be released, so here it is!
I think it’s important to explain a song a little bit, but not too much. The song is written about a specific set of circumstances and experiences, and Matt and I did such-and-such when we recorded it, but ultimately what the song is ’about’ is less important than how and why it is meaningful for you when you listen to it. Explaining too much about the details of the song is not the point, so I won’t.
“Savage” is about a friendship, it’s mysteries and it’s moments of excitement, and the way drugs played into all of it. It’s about letting go of a relationship as it changes and the emotions that go along with that.
