SLOW TRAVEL BERLIN
Au Revoir Simone, Lido, 8pm
British music publication NME once referred to Au Revoir Simone as The Virgin Suicides of music, describing the members as having “looks ranging from prim librarian, to hippy housewife to raven-haired art student.” And once you’ve heard the sound of this trio of women, it’s not difficult to imagine their music as the soundtrack to a Sofia Coppola movie.
Formed in 2003, the three-piece indie keyboard band officially arrived on the scene two years later with a debut album, establishing its sound with synths and drum machines. Then last year, Au Revoir Simone released its fourth album, “Move in Spectrums.”
In mid-January, the three toured Japan for a short stint, and will next head out on a three-week tour of Europe. Afterward, they will support Broken Bells on a U.S. tour and have plans of releasing a remix album before summertime. Natalye Childress
