Savile Row has released their new single titled ‘Set Adrift on Memory Bliss’ featuring Brad Fischetti. I know some of you will recognize this track, originally done by PM Dawn. This time around it’s done with a little flair from Savile Row, making it a nod to the past and a hopeful salute to the future.
Reminding me of high school, in some ways ( yes I was in high school in the early 90s and, yes, I was a longed hair guitar playing metal head who was also a PM Dawn fan), I feel that nostalgic grin and modern touch in all the right places from a set of artists who not only get it, they give it back. This is a sign summer is coming early this year.
About Savile Row
Savile Row’s cover of the early 1990’s dreamy dance-rap classic “Set Adrift on Memory Bliss” by PM Dawn is a song that the members of the group always loved, based on its melding of smooth pop elements and a conscious hip hop lyrical delivery.
As fans of music with a deep love of many different styles, the members of Savile Row embarked upon creating a modern version of the PM Dawn classic, as it was a track they felt was very reflective of their own genre (a hybrid of musical styles).
With that, the desire to collaborate took hold and the group reached out to Brad Fischetti of late 1990’s/early 2000’s pop group LFO (Summer Girls, Girl on TV). With Brad also being a big fan of the track, he immediately signed on to do a verse. The result is a fresh and fun take on a classic pop track.
Savile Row are veterans in the Florida and US music scenes. With branches into the metal, hip hop, punk and pop music scenes, members G Mike Jr. (vocals/guitar) and Karizma (production/synth/guitar) had long been performing with previous acts throughout the USA before coming together in 2021 to form the group.
Their debut EP ‘Steak & Lobster’ dropped last summer and features a plethora of features including Kool Keith, Sadat X (Brand Nubian), Vast Aire (Cannibal Ox), Michael Christmas, Princess Superstar, A-F-R-O, and Mr Muthaf**kin’ eXquire. The results are a tapestry of hook-laden, thought provoking, fun and emotive tracks that stand at a junction of hip hop, pop, alternative and dance music.
Savile Row plan to release their debut full length in 2023.
