Show Review

We first encountered New York dream-pop outfit Savoir Adore six years ago. The band, lead then by the fresh-out-of-school duo (or, maybe they were still in school...I don't know. They were damn young though!) Paul Hammer and Deidre Muro were the talk of the town; a dreamy and endearing dream-pop outfit that somehow already had a batch of perfect songs, despite their general newness to the scene. We filmed the band at Brooklyn Bowl, the band went on a nice roll of their own for a few years, and then they maybe-sorta-kinda disappeared shortly after releasing their rather wonderful break-through full-length, Our Nature in 2012.

Fast forward 4 years and Savoir Adore are back...and dare we say, better than ever. Hammer and Muro have gone their separate ways, but Hammer's resurrection of the band with a whole new outfit is a thing of beauty. The band was kind enough to drop in on The Baeble Bounce House in Austin earlier this Spring to showcase the new songs and hefty new line-up. On a day that featured one killer performance after another, the band's set at the party really stood out. It had been years since we last saw Savoir, and the glossy, anthemic, and heartfelt batch of songs from their recently-released album The Love That Remains really hit the sweet spot. We've been sitting on the set for a little while now, waiting for the perfect time to showcase the next chapter in one of our favorite hometown acts. And well, with the band's first album in four years finally out and the summer sun still beating us all into submission, the timing seems right. Enjoy Savoir Adore's killer set in Austin.

Transcript

We were brightly shining Like a child's dream
And you were everything To me
Colors fade around me A disillusioned scene
You were everything Everything
The dream is over now It was never what it seemed
Was it ever real? It was always real to me
Keep running from the ones you love the most And then I know
Left me in your lover's wake I can't let go of our mistakes
I want to suffer Others never compensate
They're drowning in their lover's wake I want to suffer
With you
The dream is over now
I can't let go of our mistakes The dream is over now
The dream is over now The dream is over now
The dream is over now Left me in your lover's wake
I can't let go of our mistakes I want to suffer
Others never compensate They're drowning in their lover's wake
I want to suffer I want to suffer
With you
- All right, awesome.
How you doing? It's good to be back at South by Southwest.
I saw her innocent eyes Her spirit passed me by
Our time is Alive
She has been waiting for you We thought that you would come through
Oh young boy Just what do you plan to do?
It's a day for us to remember Take my hand and burn together
You can take her body You can have it all
Make it through the night Her body will rise
And in the morning we'll find We are of the same kind
Our lives in line Oh what a foolish disguise
Believing all of our lies He'll learn, he'll learn in time
It's a day for us to remember Follow me and we'll burn together
You can take her body You can have it all
Make it through the night Her body will rise
All of our lies
Feel right All of our lies
Feel right
It's a night for us to remember Take my hand and we'll burn together
You can have it all Make it through the night
Her body will rise You can take her body
You can have it all Back where it belongs
Her body is gone
How's everybody doing? We're Savoir Adore from Brooklyn, New York.
Starting the day early, going late.
Even when the night comes After all the setting suns
You're still the glowing one, aren't you? Even on our worst days
When love was stripped away You always made it stay, didn't you?
I still feel our fragments rush Into each other, keeping us
On the edge of ecstasy A place where we are constantly
Beating hearts from the start So combined that they can't be torn apart
We will stay in this way Here together because we know there's no
other way Two bodies now aligned
Twin thoughts into different minds I can't imagine time without you
No matter what song we sing I feel everything
Anything that hurts you, it hurts me too Give me every tragedy
I want it all, every little piece Fold the mold in two-by-two
Shedding aches for truth In a shape that's new
Beating hearts from the start So combined that they can't be torn apart
We will stay in this way Here together because we know there's no
other way I feel it when you're near me
And when you say my name Our pulses merge to one
They beat the same Beating hearts from the start
We can bleed but we'll never be be torn apart
Strange but true In our bodies, we will find it
Something new Who we are now, we will finally love
Beating hearts from the start So combined that they can't be torn apart
We will stay in this way Here together because we know there's no
other way I feel it when you're near me
And when you say my name Our pulses merge to one
They beat the same Beating hearts from the start of it
We can bleed but we'll never be be torn apart
Thank you very much.
We've just got a few more for you.
For those of you who have seen us before, this is a brand new one called Devotion.
This is the first time we're playing it.
Our hearts beat, taken
Won't you show me what it's all about If I die here, suddenly I'm walking in a
house of God I wish that I could worship you every day
We'd do it again Do it again
Do it again Take my hands and pray
Show me what your motion is Show me that devotion
Show me that devotion Show me what your motion is
Show me that devotion Show me what your motion is
Show me that devotion Hearts beat eternally
There's an echo and it's in disguise If I die here tonight
Suddenly I'm walking through an endless sky
I wish that I could worship you every day Do it again
Do it again Do it again
Take my hands and pray Show me what your motion is
Show me that devotion Show me what your motion is
Show me that devotion Show me what your motion is
Show me that devotion Show me what your motion is
Show me that devotion Show me what your motion is
Show me that devotion
Thank you very much.
I know it's early, but you guys can dance if you want to.
High in the air Dusk cocoons are hiding right on in the
dark Fly like a bear
Pop pop Regalia They own all we know
Now you know all of my old names Now you see that everything's the same
I keep you there, panic through the wild Rider in the dark
Fall to the ground Pop pop Athena
They own all we know
Now you know all of my old names
Now you see that everything's the same Becoming one together in the secret fire
Where you were made and everything remains
Now you know all of my old names
Now you see that everything's the same Becoming one together in the secret fire
Where you were made and everything remains
Thank you very much, guys.
We've just got a couple more for you.
This one you might know.
Sing along if you do.
Won't you come Here you know the way
It's the one you made Built it in the sky
All that's in your eye now not the same Watch it tumble down
Falling all around Can you stand watching it undo all that's
made of you? You can stay where you are
I will wake you in the morning In the morning
You can stay where you are, so don't you worry
Don't you worry Keep on sleeping
Now you see What you thought was yours
could never be had Take a look around
Try to understand that It's a game that you'll never hold onto
very long, long Where we are isn't just a place where
everything remains You can stay where you are
I will wake you in the morning
You can stay where you are So don't you worry
Don't you worry Keep on sleeping
You can stay where you are You can stay where you are
You can stay where you are You can stay where you are
You can stay where you are You can stay where you are
We're all the same Watching it tumble down
Falling all around, around Can you stand watching it undo
Fall instead of you I will wake you
I will wake you in the morning So don't you worry
Don't you worry Keep on sleeping
All right guys, thank you so much.
We've just got one more brand new song for you guys.
Thanks again for listening.
Thank you to Baeble for having us, and hopefully we'll see you at another show, or somewhere else in Austin again.
If you build your house out of bones You'll never be alone
See your body exposed Just a vessel for your soul
Throw your heart in the river If you can't let it go
Cause your soul grows bigger Than your body ever knows
Stumble repeat, stumble repeat Get off your feet, get off your feet
If the feeling don't fit, you just have to stick with it
Got a soul so big, we were giants at the start of it
No we're never going to quit Not even just a little bit
No we're never going to quit Because we are giants, giants, giants
This world is blind Eyes so deep and difficult
If we took the time We'd see the ease in being kind
Throw it all in the river And let it all go
You don't have to suffer To let yourself grow
Watch it burn into cinders Can you read the smoke
Stumble repeat, stumble repeat Get off your feet, get off your feet
If the feeling don't fit, you just have to stick with it
Got a soul so big, we were giants at the start of it
No we're never going to quit Not even just a little bit
No we're never going to quit Because we are giants, giants, giants
at the heart of it
If the feeling don't fit, you just have to stick with it
But it's never going to quit
You just have to stick with it If the feeling don't fit
you just have to stick with it No we're never going to quit
Because we are giants at the heart of it
If the feeling don't fit, you just have to stick with it
Got a soul so big, we were giants at the start of it
No we're never going to quit
Not even just a little bit No we're never going to quit
Because we are giants at the heart of it
If the feeling don't fit, you just have to stick with it
Got a soul so big, we were giants at the start of it
No we're never going to quit
Not even just a little bit No we're never going to quit
Because we are giants, giants, giants at the heart of it
Thanks so much, guys.
We're Savoir Adore.
Thanks so much for listening.
See you soon.

Artist Bio

Even in a scene as vibrant as the current one in Brooklyn, Savoir Adore bring something entirely unique and exciting to the table with their addictively lush slant on pop. In the Wooded Forest, their exuberant debut album, showcases the many strengths of this exciting, young band. Soaring melodies. Infectious beats. This album demands repeat listens and will have your friends asking "What is this?!" From the high-octane pop of "Bodies" to meditatively gorgeous closer "The Garden", Savoir Adore display a potent combination of raw talent and musical maturity that is extremely rare in a debut release. With their unique blend of indie influences and infectious dance beats, its no wonder the group has garnered comparisons to such great artists as Phoenix, Jens Lekman and Bishop Allen.

Savoir Adore's first release, The Adventures of Professor Pumpernickel and the Girl with Animals in Her Throat, is full of fresh ideasso full, in fact, that they manage to cover dozens of feelings and styles in the process. Perhaps the open, free-range moods of their work is due to the fact that the duo wrote and recorded the entirety of the EP over the course of just one weekend.
