Today, Dublin-based Anna B Savage released her debut album, A Common Turn, via City Slang. Throughout A Common Turn, the London-born singer-songwriter 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.
A musical protege of Father John Misty, Savage embodies similar moving lyrics and alternative angst. Her full-throated voice brings her moody verses to life, channeling tangible emotion. NPR's All Songs Considered said her recently released track, “Baby Grand,” left them “breathless.”
For the last three years, Savage has stitched together influences while writing for her debut album. Littered with personal and cultural references like the Rocky Horror Picture Show, female pleasure, mental health, and a ceramic owl mug by Scottish alt-rock legend Edwyn Collins, A Common Turn speaks to the world we live in now.
With a soulful sound reminiscent of Joni Mitchell, A Common Turn is only Savage's beginning. The singer is already expected to perform at this year's virtual SXSW Conference, and has a tour planned for after the pandemic. To celebrate her debut album, A Common Turn is available in limited edition blue vinyl and as a bundle with an Anna B Savage logo engraved pocket vibrator made from biodegradable plastic. Both versions can be bought here.
