With just two rules: “48 hours. No acoustic guitars”, the Brooklyn fantasy-pop duo Savoir Adore was born. They’ve teased us at the beginning of this year with the beautifully beguiling and lusciously textured ‘Dreamers EP’ released on 7” via Neon Gold. NME hailed their sound “musically and lyrically brave,” and Nylon praised it as “irresistibly melodic indie pop”. Now back on our fair shores with the full-length album ‘Our Nature’, they couldn’t have returned sooner.
Lead single ‘Regalia’ is an utterly sunshine-filled headphones moment; combining gorgeous dreamscape synths with tropical yet tribal percussion, and of course, the irresistible pop hooks Savoir Adore are best known for.
In 2007, as disheartened solo artists, they whimsically retreated out of the city to a rural studio. The fruitful returns being ‘The Adventures of Mr. Pumpernickel and The Girl with Animals in Her Throat’ (Cantora), a concept-driven EP set in a fairy tale land that narrates the tragedy of Gloria and her unrequited love. On their 2009 debut album ‘In The Wooded Forest’, they expounded on the EP’s mythical landscape. But where Savoir Adore’s previous releases have surveyed these worlds at a distance, ‘Our Nature’ zooms in, putting our inner landscapes and relationships at the core of every track. In that vein, the recordings themselves are intentionally more crisp, aurally expansive and intriguing.
Having previously shared the stage with the likes of MGMT, Los Campesinos, Oh Land, and Toro Y Moi; Savoir Adore will hit the road to promote Our Nature and invite listeners, if only for night, into their magical realm. Dates to be announced soon.
