Savoir Adore - "Paradise Gold" (audio) (premiere)
“Paradise Gold” is a good example of why the neon-soaked sound of glitzy, glittery electropop continues to work.
Savoir Adore makes glitzy, glittery electropop, and “Paradise Gold” is a good example of why that neon-soaked sound continues to work. A shuffling intro gives way to a disco-lite verse, bass snarls and quick darts of guitar interplaying until the chorus takes hold in a puff of cotton candy. It’s equally Madeon and Breathe Carolina, scene elements interplaying with funky electro house. It’s a sound that certainly doesn’t have universal appeal — it has too much fun for that — but I’m glad this kind of music still lights up my parties.
"Paradise Gold" was a collaboration with producer Mark Maxwell,” says Savoir Adore’s Paul Hammer. “I told him about the concept of the record and we ended up diving into an exploration of how love can warp reality, and time -- for better and for worse. And how confusing, but also enlightening that feeling can be. It's always fun to take a love song, and approach it from a different angle.”
The Love That Remains releases August 12th.
