Savoy has dropped Let You Go, a delightfully retro electronica track, on Monstercat's label. Things have been pretty quiet in the Savoy camp; however, they have clearly shown no signs of rust. Savoy continues to blur the lines between bands and producers. They are a band that produces electronic rock music. The trio can come at you in any direction, funk, dubstep, synthwave, rock music; Savoy does it all, and they usually do it under more lasers than you can shake a stick at.
Let You Go begins with vocal chops which pierce through a synth until the percussion joins in. Classic synthwave drums set an alternating kick and snare foundation for the harmonizing vocals to build off of. The retro drum fill introduces the drop which is a synth-driven masterpiece so dreamy it deserves to be blasting out of Steve Harrington’s BMW 733i in the show Stranger Things. I find synthwave tracks to be fascinating in that even when the melody is beautiful there is always a hint of darkness to them; Let You Go is a shining example of this. With new songs trickling out here and there, one can only hope the boys are getting ready to fire up the lasers for another tour.
This record is about realizing you can’t live without someone. It is both a look at the past when everything was perfect and a vision into the future when everything will make sense again. Great things take time. -Savoy
