STRIFE - a video directed by Antoine Carlier.

"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."

French director Antoine Carlier - co-founder of Pop Noire records with Jehnny Beth, who previously collaborated with the band on their artwork - filmed the scene with a modern black & white aesthetic on the beaches of Gironde in South-West France. The film is a play on human instincts and desire for survival, echoing the famous beach murder scene in the novel 'The Stranger' by Albert Camus.

Either a tale from the past or science-fiction, this is an endless story of human struggle. We see the fragmentation between two generations, a subject of predilection for Savages (ref: 'I Am Here' manifesto), where the "young, intelligent and radical people" live in servitude to established elders.

Lyrics:
THEY WONDER HOW WE DO IT
THEY ASK ME IF I CARE
THEY WONDER HOW COME THE YEARS
HAVEN'T SOUGHT MORE LOVER'S TEAR

THEY QUESTION THAT IT'S TRUE
A LOVE WHICH NEVER WILTS
AND THEY MUST SEEK YOU THERE
WHERE FURIES SMITE YOUNG SLITS

AND THEY MUST SEEK YOU THERE
DOWN IN THE STRIFE
AND THEY MUST SEEK YOU THERE
WHERE DEATH OUTNUMBERS LIFE

AND THEY HAVE NO IDEA
WHAT WE DO AT NIGHT
AND HOW FOR YOU AND I
THE HOUR NEVER STRIKES

THEY WONDER HOW WE DO IT
THEY WONDER HOW COME
HOW COME I'VE BEEN DOING THINGS WITH YOU
I WOULD NEVER TELL MY MUM

AND THEY MUST SEEK YOU THERE
DOWN IN THE STRIFE
AND THEY MUST SEEK YOU THERE
WHERE DEATH OUTNUMBERS LIFE
