Interview: Savoir Adore

By on Friday, 27th July 2012 at 11:00 am

Mary missed chatting in person with Savoir Adore at the Great Escape this past May, but Luke sent these questions over to the band in the hopes that we could catch them over email during the summer. What follows below is their spirited responses to our queries about their new material coming out later this year and their hometown of Brooklyn, among other things. Read on… Oh, and their answers to our Quickfire Questions? They are here.

What have Savoir Adore been up to lately?
We just finished a U.S. tour with Jukebox the Ghost and getting ready to release our new record, ‘Our Nature’!

You recently came over to the UK for a couple of shows, how was that?
It was amazing! Especially Great Escape in Brighton, that was SO much fun!

What do you most like (or dislike) about the British crowds?

Our shows have been so much fun in the UK, that we can only say good things about the crowds! They’ve been very enthusiastic and exciting to play for.

Electronic music has been on a steady rise in the mainstream music press in recent years, what is the reason for this shift?
onestly, it’s a combination of a lot of factors… The ease of production programs like logic, reason and protools and also the popularity of dance music overall in the mainstream. I think that organic interest in it has really propelled a lot of new acts…

Which bands would you say are ones to watch out for in electro?
French Horn Rebellion!!!!!!! NEXT JACK SWING.

Brooklyn bands have a reputation for being ‘cool’, do you consider yourselves cool?

Ahh, no we don’t… but perhaps that makes us ‘cool’? Maybe? Eh???

Why is Brooklyn seen as the epicentre of music that is cool and trendy?
I think it’s a combination of NYC being a cultural hub and the fact that Brooklyn is the cheaper neighorhood to live in. I think that naturally creates an environment of young, enthusiastic and experimental artists.

Your music is based around fantasy worlds and imaginative concepts, where do you draw your inspiration from?
We draw inspiration from a lot of places. Our own wild imaginations and goofy tendencies… Music, movies, books, places, environments. We also enjoy the challenge of writing songs and stories based on fantastical characters and settings.

You’re gearing up to release new album ‘Our Nature’, what can you tell us about it?
‘Our Nature’ is the cautionary tale of a monster, a girl and their wild love for one another.

What fantastical themes will we be treated to?
Monsters. Particle physics. Dreamscapes. Love.

You haven’t released an LP since 2009, why the delay?
We really wanted to take our time with the second album. Let things develop naturally and polish the song structures and productions. For our first EP and LP we had a lot of fun trying to record as fast as possible, for this we thought it would be a completely different challenge doing the opposite.

What plans do you have for the rest of the year?
Hopefully a lot of touring in support of the new record. Also making music videos and working on new music!
