SAVAK were formed back in 2015 by Soharb Habibion, Michael Jaworski, and Matt Schulz. As for the live band, it features Jeff Gensterblum and Matt Hunter. For a band that toured Europe five times and never set foot in California, they recorded 12 songs in three days across the Danube.

The band jammed out ideas in two marathon sessions, playing a couple of shows to test out the new material before getting to work with Mathew Barnhart. There’s no guests, no edits, no country, and definitely no funk with this record. It’s lean, spacious, and lively. After five LPs, an EP, a handful of seven-inch vinyls, and a couple of split releases, SAVAK still have plenty to say. They take on themes of marriage, espionage, self-reflection, sympathy, absurdity, vulnerability, and polarization.
