Au Revoir Simone have always been a band that doesn’t want to make a lot of noise. But when they want to be heard, everyone stops to listen. For the last four years, the dreamy Brooklyn synth-pop outfit has been especially quiet, as school, families and, well, life have kept Erika Forster, Annie Hart and Heather D’Angelo from making music together.
Luckily, Au Revoir Simone are back with a new album, ‘Move In Spectrums,’ which dropped on Sept. 24 via Instant Records. Working with producer Jorge Elbrecht of Violens, the group has created a set of songs that, while reminiscent of previous efforts ‘The Bird of Music’ and ‘Still Night, Still Light,’ shows how much they’ve grown over the last few years.
From tender songs like ‘Love You Don’t Know Me’ to upbeat dancey songs like ‘Crazy,’ ‘Move In Spectrums’ is an album with something for everyone. Diffuser.fm recently had the chance to talk to Ericka, Heather and Annie about what they’ve been up to since ‘Still Night, Still Light.’ They elso explained the desire to up their “beat game” and touched on the challenges of taking their synths on the road.
