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?
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.
Actually we're planning to do a cover of this tune for ages...
