Les Savy Fav


We moved to Brooklyn together, we lived together in Providence. Until they tore down our giant cheap hipster Williamsburg loft building, we all lived together. Then we got scattered to the wind

Les Savy Fav was started by five friends attending the Rhode Island School of Design. They spent two years playing in clubs along the East Coast until their reputation spread to Seattle, where they released their first single. Their first full length album was released in 1997. Their live shows were growing in popularity due to their striking music and the onstage antics of the band’s members. They released two more albums before announcing an indefinite hiatus as a band in 2005. This did not last long, however, and they returned to the studio in late 2006. In the summer of 2010 they released their fifth full-length studio album.
