Au Revoir Simone began in fall 2003 when Erika Forster and Annie Hart first became acquainted on a long train ride home to NYC from a weekend getaway with friends. Along the way they exchanged stories and ambitions, and discovered that they shared a common desire to form an all-keyboard band. When they returned to New York City, they began meeting regularly to play music. Heather D’Angelo started joining in at these informal bedroom band practices, which also included former member Sung Bin Park (keyboard/vocals). Soon after, they started playing shows around Manhattan and Brooklyn. In January 2005, Park left the band and the girls started anew as a trio. In 2006 they did a Take-Away Show video session shot by Vincent Moon, and toured the US, Canada and Europe with We Are Scientists. The following year, they went on a US tour with Peter, Bjorn and John. In 2007 they played a concert at Fondation Cartier in Paris for David Lynch’s retrospective exhibition. The stage they performed on was a recreation of the set from his film Eraserhead. Au Revoir Simone played at both the Treasure Island Music Festival and Monolith Festival in September 2007, as well as the Lovebox festival in London in 2009. At the end of 2009 the group embarked on their own headlining tour of Japan. In 2007, the band contributed a t-shirt design to raise money for Transportation Alternatives. In 2010, they created one of the first interactive music videos for their song “Knight of Wands.” In true coloring book style, the video allows viewers to become a part of the creative process.[4] The band’s debut album was named after a tiny book that Hart received, titled Verses of Comfort, Assurance and Salvation. The group felt that the name completely fit their music and the way it made them feel, so they chose it for the album title.

‘Au Revoir Simone’ Chat With Julie Colero

Our collaboration with AIR made me appreciate the impact that live drums and bass imparts to our sound, and so I knew that I wanted to incorporate more of that into this album. I’m not sure that “Move in Spectrums” could have been made 4 years ago because back then we weren’t interested in making an album that sounds the way it does.
