“[Savoir Adore] intuitively sharpen their dreamy dialogues with wiry, earthy hooks and defiant dance beats: the result is an ingenious marriage of esoteric artistry and easy accessibility.” – NPR “10 Artists You Should’ve Known in 2012”
“Their music is terrifically inspired and charmingly executed.” – The Village Voice
March 1, 2013 (Los Angeles, CA) - Nettwerk Music Group is pleased to announce the signing of Brooklyn-based Savoir Adore. Combining melodic indie pop with dramatic narratives, Savoir Adore is “musically and lyrically brave” (NME).
Formed in 2007, the fantasy pop-duo of Paul Hammer and Deidre Muro has become a fixture of Brooklyn’s indie scene. Following the release of The Adventures of Mr. Pumpernickel and the Girl with Animals in Her Throat and 2009’s In The Wooded Forest, the New York music press embraced the fantastic self-released Our Nature. On June 4th, Nettwerk will re-release the album with new, previously unreleased tracks. Details forthcoming.
Savoir Adore is the latest addition to Nettwerk’s expanding label roster, which includes artists like Family Of The Year, BOY, Passenger, Junkie XL, Ladytron, Morgan Page, Peter Murphy, Angus & Julia Stone, William Fitzsimmons, as well as catalogue artists like Old Crow Medicine Show, The Submarines and fun.
“Melodies bristle, harmonies surge, hooks fly dense as bullets…a bright and startling debut” - NME

Starting July 21st, Family Of The Year will share the stage with Milo Greene on select dates in the US, followed by a month-long tour with Hey Ocean!. The band has already played sold-out shows in England and across Europe, including a triumphant set at France’s renowned music festival Les Vieilles Charrues, and garnered support stints with Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Mumford & Sons, Grouplove, Good Old War, Belle Brigade and more. To get a glimpse of the "live" sound, check out the above stripped down performance on Wilcox Sessions taping, filmed in Los Angeles.
The band is excited to hit the road to perform new songs and already-familiar tracks from last year’s St. Croix EP; which was heralded by NPR as “ebullient, full of stylistic left turns” and “intense and atmospheric” by Rolling Stone.
Enlisting producer Wally Gagel (Rolling Stones, Muse, New Order, Sebadoh, Rihanna, Eels, Folk Implosion), this is the first time that the band has gone outside their own camp while recording their music. “Having him work with us was really helpful, because you have to be pushed to edit yourself and be better, be stronger, work harder on things,” says lead vocalist/guitars, Joe Keefe. “Working with someone like that who knows exactly what we wanted it to sound like with the same exact vision, it was really kind of a no-brainer.”
“Its ebullient title track is full of stylistic left turns…it all fits seamlessly, a gem for driving to the beach with the windows down and the volume cranked…a vacation in a song.”

“If you’re familiar with FOTY, you already know (and probably love) their beach sound. If not, [St. Croix EP] is a fantastic introduction.” – Wild Honey Pie
"The Mamas and The Papas on acid.” – Steven Tyler (Aerosmith)
Nettwerk Records is pleased to announce the signing of LA-based Family Of The Year. Combining soft harmonies, comforting guitar chords and toe tapping beats, the irresistibly catchy St. Croix EP is due March 6th via Nettwerk Records.
To parallel the playfulness of the title track, the band enlisted Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Jessica Sanders to “create a video that didn’t have to be taken too seriously,” says drummer Sebastian Keefe. Watch it above.
