Savoir Adore Share New Song “Slow Motion”
June 18, 2018 BY Nettwerk
Brooklyn’s Savoir Adore are back with “Slow Motion,” the first taste of new music from their upcoming release (details tba). They celebrated last night with a headline show at Rough Trade, where they played this and other new songs to old and new fans.
“Slow Motion” was co-written by Savoir Adore principals Paul Hammer and Lauren Zettler, along with Jasper Leak (Tegan & Sara, SIA), on a trip to Los Angeles last Fall. Hammer recounts, “It was our first day in LA, and we really felt like we were jumping off the high dive. Lauren had the phrase ‘slow motion’ bouncing around for a while, and as we got to know Jasper, we reflected on the time we’re living in and what it takes to keep moving through it. ‘Everybody needs a love that’s understanding.’ We all need it, and we all need to give it. When that happens, we get that scene in the movie where everything slows down, and everyone is understood. Everyone is dancing in slow motion, together. Maybe it’s an oversimplification of the complicated world we exist in today, but it’s a really nice thought. That’s the feeling we tried to create with this song.”
“Savoir Adore” is French for “to know love” – a lofty moniker, but an idea that’s always been at the heart of the band’s romantic, imaginative pop music. The Brooklyn band first caught ears with infectious single “Dreamers” from sophomore album Our Nature, which gained international acclaim and over 4 million YouTube views. In 2016, the band went through an evolution that saw primary songwriter/vocalist Paul Hammer welcome Lauren Zettler as his permanent female counterpart. They released the critically acclaimed The Love That Remains — their most mature, honest, and ambitious album to date — and spent the better part of the year playing a slew of headline shows and supporting X Ambassadors and Bear Hands throughout North and South America.
