About Les Savy Fav

Playing sharp but engaging post-hardcore with complex melodic lines, edgy guitar leads, and plenty of eccentric wit (their name, for instance, sounds French but doesn't mean anything), Les Savy Fav confirm it's possible to be arty and sublimely entertaining at the same time. Under the leadership of frontman Tim Harrington, the group developed a reputation for smart, angular songcraft and abundant energy on 1999's The Cat and the Cobra, and developed a more mature but still wiry style on 2007's Let's Stay Friends and 2010's Root for Ruin. Other projects (including regular appearances on late-night TV) took priority for over a decade, but 2024's Oui, LSF was an accomplished step back into the spotlight.
