Describing her album’s title track and latest release, Savior says:
“I wrote “The Archer” on Christmas Eve as a gift for a lover. At the time, my perception was that I was writing a song about how it feels to love someone, but now when I listen back to “The Archer”, I realize that I was writing an observation of a psychologically unhealthy relationship, from the perspective of someone who is unconsciously aware that she is being emotionally mistreated. In 2017, I filmed the Super 8 video for “The Archer” in Port Townsend, WA with artist Alexandria Saleem. The lighthouse and the grim December sky, represented to me the isolation I felt during that time in my relationship.”
Ladygunn says, “Savior has a unique voice that veers away from the cookie cutter pop that is dominating the mainstream right now.” New single, “The Archer,” showcases that standout vocality Savior is now known for, and also weaves a bittersweet story together with clever wordplay and broodingly beautiful layers of melody.
“The Archer” is the third single from Savior’s forthcoming, sophomore album, The Archer, which was produced by Sam Cohen, often known as a fan of collaboration, most recently teaming up with Kevin Morby for his Oh My God album. On working with Savior, Cohen says, “It’s really a joy to work with someone who’s got such a strong sense of melody and also such a strong sense of what she wants stylistically.”
Savior’s debut record, Belladonna of Sadness, was written in collaboration with Alex Turner of Arctic Monkeys and NME says, “Savior continues to build on that bold arrival and is becoming a star in her own right.” Her new album shows that not only does her voice stand alone, but that her musicality stands alone, too.
