New Camus-inspired video for Silence Yourself cut

Savages have just shared their new video for 'Strife', from Silence Yourself, one of our top records of last year. It takes its lead from a scene in Albert Camus' existentialist novel The Stranger, with the band explaining: "We wanted to make a video that focused on a timeless human physicality and physical expression, a search for understanding through the movement, action and reaction of two characters. We chose the classical landscape of the empty beach. A fight ensues between two men: one older, one younger; a tragic outcome, and death" - watch it above.
