Au Revoir Simone - Fly London
Au Revoir Simone - three girls from Brooklyn with a passion for keyboards celebrated the release of their new single "Fallen snow" with an intimate show at London's Fly venue.
The girls mentioned the fact that this was their first release party,celebrating by opening a minature bottle of champagne before kicking off their performance.
Heather, Erika and Annie treated the audience to a set comprised of tracks from their first full length album "The Bird of Music" and last years eight track release "Verses of Comfort, Assurance and Salvation".
Au Revoir Simone describe their sound as "warm and organic electronic music with forthright female vocalists". Several of their tracks would feel at home soundtracking the films of David Lynch or Sofia Coppola while others are more upbeat, giving the girls a chance to have fun while performing.
During their performance Erika and Heather were fairly subdued on stage,however Annie seemed to savour the chance to "Rock Out!" at every opportunity, alternating between almost headbanging and jumping up and down like a toddler overdosing on Jelly Tots which brought a smile to my face!
The girls toured the UK last year with We Are Scientists.An odd pairing but one that seemed to work well as it delivered them a wealth of new fans,many of whom had squeezed in to the Fly to catch the bands set.
This was my third Au Revoir Simone show.I originally stumbled over them while waiting to see Tilly And The Wall at the 2006 SXSW Festival in Texas.I enjoyed their performance and waited patiently until they decided to show up in London for another great show at the end of last year.The Fly gig was just as good,my only disappointment being the fact they didn't play "Stars", my favourite track from their new album.Hopefully I'll get the chance to hear it at this years SXSW or their forthcoming London show in March.
The band have a string of Worldwide dates coming up,including performances in Glasgow and London.
