ANNA B SAVAGE shares new live video

After recently releasing her debut album, London-born Dublin-based singer-songwriter Anna B Savage is sharing a new live recording of her single Baby Grand, which was filmed in the Barbican Conservatory in London. Savage’s debut album ‘A Common Turn‘ is out now via City Slang and she will be touring the UK & Europe throughout October and November.

Speaking about the video, Savage said “This song outlines an attempt to silently breach the divide between two people, be that myself and Jem from within the song, or myself and the listener. As always, I loved working in the Barbican, a place which holds a lot of emotional weight for me as it was where I wrote the title track of my album. I feel like the stripped back acoustic version of this song is just as potent as the recorded one, allowing the listener more space to see my attempts to reach out a hand across the void.”

Making art is a bold thing, a statement. Usually a full stop, sometimes an exclamation point. But it’s bolder still when it’s a question mark. London singer-songwriter Anna B Savage makes question-mark-music, captivating and powerful, navigating various recurring themes including female sexuality, self-doubt … and birds.  

‘A Common Turn’ follows the success of Anna B Savage’s 2015 debut EP, which was praised by press internationally including NPR and The Guardian, and quickly caught the attention of Father John Misty and later Jenny Hval, both of whom took Savage under their wing and brought Savage out on tours. ‘A Common Turn’ is deeply vulnerable but without submission. Savage lays claim to her own fragility, and the stories she tells are of taking up space, finding connections, and owning the power in not knowing all the answers.
