In The Wooded Forest, Savoir Adore’s debut, is an impressive foray showcasing Deidre Muro and Paul Hammer’s songwriting abilities with intricate rhythms, layers of sound and a multitude of instruments. They have come into their own and are ready for you to discover them.
The launch of the Cake Shop residency presents a special opportunity for both Savoir Adore and French Horn Rebellion, who work closely together in and out of the studio. Since Savoir’s Deidre is featured on vocals on some beloved French Horn Rebellion tunes, you can expect her taking hold of the mic for both FHR’s new single “Beaches and Friends” (currently getting a lot of love on BBC1), as well as their last single “Up All Night”. Paul drums for French Horn Rebellion, and David Perlick-Molinari (from French Horn Rebellion) plays in Savoir Adore’s live line-up. Obviously, the Savior Adore residency will be a special treat for fans of both bands!
The band is currently crafting their own video for live favorite”Bodies”, the fashionable tune seeing love from the likes of Marc Jacobs and Urban Outfitters. Dates will soon be announced as they embark on a US tour this March in selected markets with friends Mon Khmer before hitting up SXSW.
About Savoir Adore
Savoir Adore are a fantasy-pop collective, painting songs with imagery and imagination while making fans out of the most cynical of critics. Theirs is a refreshing tale from anything and everything we’ve experienced lately. Savoir Adore principal members Paul Hammer and Deidre Muro never had intentions of recording tracks to be thrown into the blogosphere or gaining major A&R attention, and as their MySpace page states, “Savoir Adore is an accident”. Just for fun, the two multi-instrumentalist songwriters decided to collaborate after two years of catching each other’s solo performances. Challenging themselves in the studio, the duo “formed a basis of experimentation that became the primal essence of Savoir Adore.” Combining inspirations drawn from sounds, atmospheres, classic songwriting and technology, their instinctive approach has earned Savoir Adore’s songs the tag “magical” by the likes of NPR.
After keeping their nose to the grindstone by playing a multitude of shows in 2009 and most recently to a packed out Mercury Lounge on 1/14, pieces began to fall into place as fans and press have gradually been won over. The September Cantora Records issue of their full-length debut album, In The Wooded Forest, created further buzz and steadily the enthusiasts have followed. In the words of WOXY: “Sometimes demos and promo disc pile on the desk can be intimidating, and this band was on my ‘must listen to’ stack a few times and somehow never registered, so we’re late on this Brooklyn four-piece, but right on time in my book. Their full-length, ‘In The Wooded Forest’ is superb.” It’s always the right time to find the bliss-in-music of Savoir Adore.
