Savage Lucy is a Johannesburg based instrumental trio, formed in April 2011, including Austen Lewis on guitars, Steven Bosman on drums and Clint Falconer on bass.
Arranging dynamic movements of melodic phrasing over eccentric rhythms, shadowed by darkly textured breakdowns, the trio intends to create emotional and erotic soundscapes.
Savage Lucy first proved their ability to entertain a crowd by winning Emerging Sounds Battle of the Bands 2011 just six months after formation. Since then they have been playing live in and around Johannesburg and Pretoria, including Kitchener’s, The Bohemian, Tanz, Shikisha’s, Rumours Lounge, Amuse Cafe, and Shivas Rock. Festival shows include Smoking Dragon (2012 & 2014), Oppikoppi (2013) and 4/20 D-DAY (2013 & 2014.
Savage has shared the stage with the likes of The Tidal Waves, The Brother Moves On, BEAST, Birth of Joy (NOR), Last Supper (CAN), The Slashdogs, Cortina Whiplash, New Academics, Taxi Violence, Albino Beach, Poverty Of Ideals, ISO and Shadowclub. With roots in post/progressive metal, post and psychedelic rock, blues and jazz, Savage Lucy aim to build upon their influences, orchestrating sonic voyages that seize and provoke discerning ears.
