What do you get when you cross an abundant love of alt-pop music with three Brooklyn based chanteuse? That would be the inimitable Au Revoir Simone. After a break of four years, the keyboard wielding trio have announced they’re returning with a new album called Move In Spectrums, set for release on 23 September on Moshi Moshi (Instant take up release duties in the US a day later).
In celebration of this, the band have produced a slick new video for lead single ‘Somebody Who’. It’s a soft focus day dream through a chimerical netherworld only Au Revoir Simone could inhabit. And you get to watch then hanging out in a nice bathroom. Brimming with the band’s trade mark vintage keyboards and crunchy beats and overlaid with Erika Foster’s breathy vocals, ‘Somebody Who’ is the kind of track you wished The Human League had made, but never did.
