More from Au Revoir Simone

More than a nostalgia act: Au Revoir Simone takes the conventions of 80s synth pop and goes beyond the pop roots of the genre to produce something genuinely new--and, arguably, challenging or at least stimulating in a way that its source material never was.

I'm reminded of the creativity of late 70s and early 80s punk-inflected rockabilly, which was always more than just a celebration of 50s rock and roll.
