Savoir Adore

Deidre & the Dark working on a new EP + tours with French Horn Rebellion

Many of our readers should be familiar with ​​​​​​Deidre Muro and her clean soprano, since she was one half of self defined "fantasy pop" duo Savoir Adore - which is still active, led by the other original member Paul Hammer. Deidre, who left the band in 2014, has just announced that her revival pop project debuted in 2011 under the moniker "Deidre & the Dark" will be releasing a new EP in late 2016, and that the band will also tour with French Horn Rebellion and Mystery Skulls in March. Check out the video for single 'Classic Girl,' from 2012, which gives you an idea of the uplifting and theatrical performances this band has been known for. They'll be playing Music Hall Of Williamsburg on March 10. Deidre also plays in electronic trio  Violet Sands (single 'No Matter What' also streaming below).


NYC electro duo on the rise: The Golden Pony releases "Die Inside Your Dance" feat. Savoir Adore

The Golden Pony - an electronic duo that just entered our "Emerging NYC Bands with Buzz" top 15 - broke onto the NYC scene in 2013 with a string of dancy remixes of old and new artists (the most successful being the one of Simon and Garfunkel's "The Sound of Silence"). They have since gathered over 5,000,000 plays on Soundcloud and had two #1 hits on Hype Machine. The curly male duo also writes original songs, otherwise they wouldn't be featured in this blog: the latest is a chilled EDM tune entitled "Die Inside Your Dance," featuring Savoir Adore at the vocals, check it out streaming below.


Weekly Feature: Q&A with Savoir Adore about new release 'Our Nature'

New York City’s Savoir Adore has a new album out, the duo’s third, whose overt theme of eros transmits simply enough. Yet first impressions can be deceiving, as we’ll soon learn. Titled Our Nature, the album’s noisy indie-electro sound feels a cleaner, more fully-realized version of the drowsy bedroom synthpop that has dominated Brooklyn dance music for the past five years. Our Nature’s lead single, “Dreamers,” works something like a dialogue between two star-crossed lovers in a romantic dreamscape, the duo singing to eachother as one might expect Orpheus to Eurydice, Abelard to Heloise or, ahem, Sonny to Cher.Yet as The Deli found out in our interview with Savoir Adore, the duo are neither a real-life couple, nor are the lovers in the album’s larger narrative both fully human.The duo played tonight (10.9) at Brooklyn's Knitting Factory, for the release of their album 'Our Nature', which is available to pre-order on iTunes, and will officially come out on October 16th.

Savoir Adore plays free Mercury Lounge show 9.22

Savoir Adore's new album is on the way; 'Our Nature', set to be released on October 16th, was introduced at the end of last year with their single 'Dreamers'. As we got closer, the Brooklyn duo recently revealed a new track off the record, 'Regalia', electro - pop/rock jam as delicious as its title sounds with some groovy basslines and generous layers, danceable rhythmics along the lines of Dreamers, but where that one was... well, dreamy, this is ensemble coming on with twice as much of a kick. An inviting teaser, for sure. Before they hit the road to promote their new album throughout the month of October, Savoir Adore will be playing a free show (!) at Mercury Lounge this Saturday (9.22), sharing the bill with Montreal's Stars
