NAME: Au Revoir Simone
HOMETOWN: Brooklyn, NYC
I love this cover!
HOW I HEARD ABOUT THEM: I’ve known Annie and Erika since the DoP dayz back in the early 2000s.
LATEST RELEASE: The Bird of Music [Release date: Self-release on Feb 26, 2007 on their Our Secret Record Company label–BUY]
SONG LISTENED TO: “Fallen Snow”
WHAT THEY SOUND LIKE: Whimsical, light, airy, and definitely girly. If they every toured with Joanna Newsom, indie boys around the world would have exploding eargasms, and their little hearts would burst out of their sweater vests onto the floor, causing them all to fall dead immediately. The pretty ladies start a MASSIVE international tour starting Feb 13th and don’t come home until June 15th at Webster Hall.
1 to 5 RATING: 4
