Brooklyn, NY’s Au Revoir Simone will release their first album in four years, ‘Move in Spectrums’ on September 23rd through Moshi Moshi. Produced by Violens’ Jorge Elbrecht, ‘Move in Spectrums’ is the follow up to 2009’s critically acclaimed and the trio’s most successful record yet, ‘Still Night, Still Light’.

Following the release of their three well-loved albums, ‘Verses of Comfort, Assurance and Salvation’, ‘The Bird of Music’ and ‘Still Night, Still Light’, Au Revoir Simone felt they needed a break. They had toured all over the world, been involved in exciting collaborations with the likes of Air and Johnny Marr, and became the favorite band of legendary director David Lynch in the process. They tirelessly gave their all to audiences around the globe, filling rooms from Tokyo to Reykjavik, from Montreal to Sao Paolo.  And when the touring cycle ended, they decided to each take their own path, unsure where the band would end up in the process.

Individually, they started writing again; collecting vintage keyboards again, focusing on the incredible power of sounds and sine waves 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 started playing together again, with all level of sonic experimentation happening, until they realized they were actually making a record. What commenced after that was the most intense, collective songwriting of their lives, revising and revamping every keyboard and vocal line until each song had a certain luster that matched the intensity and sheen of the band’s own passions.

The result is Move In Spectrums’, an album that – like its title – creates different melodic textures and aural colors via the finest songs Au Revoir Simone have ever recorded.

Au Revoir Simone have additionally announced a string of European dates including London’s XOYO in September.
