Bahari’s new remix of their hit song Savage adds the spice we didn’t know we needed. The remix returns to what a remix should actually should be, not only adding a fire verse by Boston rapper BIA, but reimagining the whole song. Duo Bahari — formed by bassist/vocalist Natalia Panzarella and pianist/vocalist Ruby Carr — rerecorded vocals and wrote over the original beats making the song much closer to their current sound, in comparision to the 2018 version.
The new music video is also a whole new interpretation of the sassyness and sensuality of Savage, that has lyrics like “You know I’m not a saint/But I can make you pray/So get down on your knees/give me a reason I should stay”. It shows that Bahari’s new era is going to be exactly the right amount of dark mixed with the right about of sexy to breakthrough.
