Once upon a time in the English language a single slash indicated a comma and two slashes indicated a dash. I can't really seem to identify any specific meaning for three slashes but if a comma is used to avoid linguistic ambiguity via separation and a dash is designed to emphasize a strong connection between words you can sort of see what it may imply in this here band name. For their first proper release, NEW FLESH, Young///Savage shows a great love for traditional post-punk stylings in the vein of Drive Like Jehu, but there is also a heavy lean toward noodly post-hardcore acts like Minus The Bear or Look Mexico. There is an interesting blending of hyphenated genres that normally might sit along side each other rather than on one another's lap. Perhaps that extra slash means nothing more than a way to differentiate the band from the hip-hop act Young Savage or the other way the band is sometimes written Young;Savage. Whatever the case is, this EP is really quite good.
