Savoir Adore are a fantasy-pop-rock outfit from Brooklyn, NY led by Deidre Muro and Paul Hammer. "Our idea," says Muro of the band's philosophy, "was to approach this music with as little pressure or expectation as possible, but rather with ideas, curiosity and openness." The musicians who met while studying music at NYU, have an EP, The Adventures of Professor Pumpernickel and the Girl with Animals in Her Throat, that 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 their first release over the course of just one weekend.
The EP loosely follows a storyline of passion, jealousy and tragedy between student and professor; all these emotions manifest themselves at different points in what could accurately be described as a fantastical literary playground disguised as a compact disc.
The result is a record that demonstrates the duo's musical knowledge and appreciation of its influences, ranging from classic rock to gypsy music. Savoir Adore's organic take on the creative process navigates the oft-overwhelming waters of playful diversity with a digestible ease, and the "Mr. P" EP is dressed to exhibit the many promising costumes it dreams of.
