Singer Milan’s striking baritone vocals evoke the spirit of a great poet. His guitar playing is a simple, primitive and hypnotic Blues boogie not unlike John Lee Hooker’s – it’s one that taps into the raw, authentic strand of Blues guitar that has been forgotten by the passage of time.
The New Savages have a subtle sense of charisma and confidence that seems to come from having their ears are tuned to the sounds of the old world. This deep interest in the history of the blues led Milan on a pilgrimages into the Mississippi Hill Country. The journey served as an inspirational basis for the band’s debut album Seventh Son.
