"With love from us to you, here's 'You Never ask Me Why'"
To celebrate the start of the new year 2021, GENTLE SAVAGE have released a lyric video for their new single 'YNAMW (You Never Ask Me Why)', taken from the band's upcoming debut album ‘Midnight Waylay’, out in February 2021.

Lead vocalist Tornado on video:
"YNAMW (You Never ask Me Why) lyric video was designed to boost the story without stealing any attention from the music. It continues the comic book theme Gentle Savage started with the Honey Bunny animation video. The making of the graphic world of YNAMW was inspired by guns, vampires and cowboys and the video builds up mostly on the lyrics. Sometimes simplicity is all that is needed.
Video was animated by Tornados cousin Kristian K XP."

Lead vocalist Tornado on the single:
"YNAMW (You Never Ask Me Why) started out as a funny triplet feel guitar riff with sound effects of whipping and wicked screaming. The first idea was to write a song with the feel of a Clint Eastwood type of a Western movie. While being on a sick leave, vocalist Tornado Bearstone watched The Twilight Saga (accidentally of course). Somehow the idea of superhuman powers, beauty and eternal love appealed to Tornado's state of mind and a modern Cowboy - Vampire character was born in his imagination. So you can say that the story of You Never Ask Me Why was inspired by the movies."
He continues, "As a composition YNAMW is somewhere between Gentle Savage's songs Run Run Poor Boy and Karelian Magic. It has a melodic chorus that gives a good contrast to the quite bold and rhythmic feel of the verses. You can easily recognize it as a Gentle Savage song with the guaranteed sounds they are already known for. There's plenty of interesting things going on both musically and story wise as the Cowboy - Vampire goes out looking for the one he loves! And bites."
Gentle Savage’s debut album, ‘Midnight Waylay’ is coming out in February 2021. It’s a way of describing an ambush at midnight, or going to a rock show; you never know what’s going to happen out there.
Midnight Waylay depicts a ‘taking it easy in the daytime, turning into a beast at night’ kind of lifestyle. Just like a hunter strikes from the shadows, ruthless and silent, these songs can without warning rock your world.
As a concept the album Midnight Waylay is best appreciated when served whole, but each song has its own character and works well independently. Find your own adventure, let yourself loose!"
"It is all about the songs. And their internal message. That's the basic philosophy behind Gentle Savage."
