WATCH: Anna B Savage – ‘Dead Pursuit’

Tentative guitars, revealing lyrics and heartfelt vocals permeate ‘Dead Pursuit’, the latest single from London-based songwriter Anna B Savage. Taken from her upcoming album which is set for release later this year, the track is an affecting, defiant ballad that sees the artist tear herself “limb from limb”.

Savage penned ‘Dead Pursuit’ whilst grappling with imposter syndrome after the success of her 2015 debut EP, which caught the attention of Father John Misty and Jenny Hval, both of whom gave Savage support slots on their sold out tours. It’s humbling to hear Savage lay her insecurities bare on ‘Dead Pursuit’, and comforting to know they haven’t stopped from from creating her beguiling sounds.

The track is accompanied by a hand-drawn animated video by the artist Carolina Aguirre. “I’ve been a fan of Carolina’s style and output for many, many years” Savage explains. “When she sent me the treatment for this video I cried. Her allegorical tale so perfectly expresses that feeling of a loss of confidence, and a questioning of identity. I feel an incredible amount of catharsis to have made something so beautiful and emotive from such a low point, and for that song to have prompted such an incredible, affecting visual companion.”
