Last Autumn, Au Revoir Simone released their fourth album ‘Move in Spectrums’; their first album in four years. It quickly garnered acclaim across the board with many declaring the trio to be back with their best record yet.
Having announced an European tour for February just before the end of 2013 including a NME Awards Show at London’s The Garage, Au Revoir Simone now confirm their next single will be ‘More Than’ – due Feb 24th through Moshi Moshi Records. Listen to it above…
The first track from the album, ‘More Than’, opens with the hushed words “It’s a long time coming / A long time gone away” over a soft keyboard riff – a knowing nod to their absence. As the song builds into the irresistible refrain of the chorus, it shows Au Revoir Simone as a reinvigorated band, one with a new vocal mobility and freedom.
‘Move in Spectrums’ was produced by the band and Violens’ Jorge Elbrecht and saw Au Revoir Simone – consisting of Heather D’Angelo, Erika Forster and Annie Hart – create some of the finest songs the band have recorded. Having each taken a break after touring their last album ‘Still Night, Still Light’, they individually started writing again. Eventually, they shared their creations with each other; the result produced the sort of excitement and magical chemistry that has always marked the friendship between these three ladies. They swiftly became engulfed in creating another record. ‘Move in Spectrums’ is an honest refraction of three lives weaving together in a thirst for life, sensation, truth and love.
