ToDo ToDay: Au Revoir Simone, Logic, and Free Gelato
Some bands opt to simply sprinkle their tunes with keys, while others go all-in—and Brooklyn trio Au Revoir Simone sticks to the latter. Formed in 2003, the infectious dream-pop act (longtime friends Erika Forster, Annie Hart, and Heather D’Angel) is 100 percent keyboards, with each member boasting her own vintage setup. But while the outfit’s airy electro-pop is driven by shimmering synths, it’s also supported by gorgeous, layered harmonies and simple drum machine beats.
