Au Revoir Simone

is David Lynch’s favourite band. In fact, Erika Forster, Annie Hart und Heather D'Angelo could have emaneted from one of his movies. The New York threesome plays synthie-pop and fairytale art rock like three elfs from another world – or are they Robert Wyatt’s and Brian Eno's spurious children?

Which song do you listen to when...
you feel like 1982?
Hall & Oates - Say It Isn't So
you take a bubble bath?
America - You Can Do Magic
you relax on a beach?
Gary Wright - Dream Weaver

This song or any soft rock also reminds me of being in the car with my parents. I think that's why I get nostalgic for it. Especially when I'm on tour and stuck in a similar situation of having nothing to do but look out the window and listen to music.
