Au Revoir Simone – The Bird of Music

Avatar

Au Revoir Simone

Brooklyn synth-pop trio Au Revoir Simone are playing in Whelans this Wednesday in support of their second album The Bird of Music which is out now. Its a more assured and layered piece of work than last year’s Verses of Comfort, Assurance and Salvation but is a lot more melancholic than I was expecting. At times, the music sounds a bit too much like generic Casio-pop especially on “Dark Halls” “Night Majestic” with their cheesy lyrics but they get away with it because the melodies are so damn sweet. “Fallen Snow”, “Lucky One” and “A Violent and Flammable World” demonstrate the maturity of their sound from Verses..

Judging by the video I posted a while ago, it should be a fun gig.
