Stream: The Wood Burning Savages – Been Anywhere Lately?


Another highlight from this year’s Record Store Day was a rather unexpected single from Derry band The Wood Burning Savages.

Having written and recorded it during last week, ‘Been Anywhere Lately?’ was released on Saturday for the annual celebration of independent music stores worldwide. The track sees the Paul Connolly-fronted four-piece jolting straight for the jugular, pounding rhythms and impassioned refrains propelled by dual harmonies and the aforementioned frontman’s rousing tail-telling. In all, yet another subtly seismic clenched fist from the fast-rising Derry act.
