Savoir Adore - The Love That Remains

by James Weiskittel Rating:7 Release Date:2017-01-06

When it comes to the hundred different variations of the Rock genre that exist there is one universal truth that tends to prevail regardless of the decade (or production or even the outfits): a good song is a good song.  Brooklyn Indie-Rockers Savoir Adore are about to release their third album The Love That Remains, a unapologetically polished album that finds the band fully embracing the art of the pop song.

Taken as a whole, The Love That Remains is an impressively cohesive collection of pop gems, with each and every track serving a purpose in what feels like a ‘good-times’ soundtrack.  But repeated listens reveal a subtlety that is otherwise missed, especially when it comes to the song-craft department.  From start to finish, The Love That Remains is blissfully infectious and boasts some impressively polished production.

The dripping synth and hushed vocals of the album opener “Lovers Awake” effectively set the tone for what is to come.  Meanwhile the anthemic bleacher stomp of “Giants” immediately evokes an Imagine Dragons vibe while studio orchestrations of “Paradise Gold” would not sound out of place on a Tears for Fears album.  The upbeat pulse continues right on through to the very last notes of “Night Song”, an impressively potent piece that speaks well to the consistency of this album.                                                                                                                    
The eleven songs that comprise The Love That Remains are clearly sonic labors of love.  Savoir Adore effortlessly evokes the melodic sensibilities of yesteryear’s pop while somehow managing to deliver a freshly current sounding album.  There may not be a single acoustic drum or electric guitar to be found here (I apologize in advance if I’m wrong here; it’s a dense mix my friends), but Savoir Adore’s The Love That Remains impressively rocks nonetheless.
