After releasing their third album â€˜Still Night, Still Lightâ€™ last summer to much critical acclaim, Brooklyn trio Au Revoir Simone will be releasing a remix album entitled â€˜Night Lightâ€™ on July 5th through Moshi Moshi Records.
â€˜Night Lightâ€™ features remixes from Aeroplane, Jens Lekman, Neon Indian, Silver Columns and Deradoorian (Angel Deradoorian from The Dirty Projectors) to name just a few of those contributing; each artist has taken one of the album tracks from â€˜Still Night, Still Lightâ€™ and reworked it into their own carnation creating a complete alternate to the album version.
Echoes of the girlsâ€™ ethereal voices are ever present, but – from Bass Clefâ€™s dubby, warped remix to the stunning offering by Clock Opera – these new workings add fresh and progressive dimensions to Au Revoir Simoneâ€™s musical spectrum.
Since the release of â€˜Still Night, Still Lightâ€™, Au Revoir Simone have played their first ever shows in China, Mexico City and Korea.
Theyâ€™ll also be playing with Air in Paris on June 1st. This is not simply a support slot, but the girls will be playing with Air themselves and all 5 musicians will be doing a combination of songs by Au Revoir Simone and Air.
This is part of three other shows Air are doing in Paris (the others been with Jarvis Cocker, a full orchestra and the artist Yi Shou).
Au Revoir Simone embark on a full European tour before heading to London for a one off show at the Scala:
The trio will also be playing a string of European festivals later this year including Pukkelpop and Austriaâ€™s Frequency.
While Heather has been continuing her studies in astrophysics, Erika and Annie recently joined the latest Girl Crisis project and sung on a cover of Nirvanaâ€™s â€˜Come As You Areâ€™. See the stunning video
