"This effort from Denton trio Savage and the Big Beat suggests a collision between T. Rex, MGMT and Queen. But instead of grinding out sound-alike material, Max Brown, Kyle Irion and Benny Bailey synthesize these influences to create something kinetic and, frankly, a lot of fun. We Are Defenders, produced by Andrew Majors, doesn’t waste a minute of its six tracks. Wolves of the Iron is massive, despite its sub-three-minute run time; Hold Ice Base 17 is the closest thing to an epic on this quick-and-dirty EP, and features gobsmacking guitar work from Irion. Play this one loud, and often."
