Au Revoir Simone – Somebody Who (NZCA/Lines Remix) (single) (Moshi Moshi Music)
Last autumn, Brooklyn electronic dream pop act Au Revoir Simone released their fourth album Move in Spectrums (read our review), their first album in four years, which quickly garnered acclaim across the board with many declaring the trio to be back with their best record yet.
Dreamy and nostalgic, Move In Spectrums was a collection of impeccably crafted, sugar-coated synthpop tunes with strong 80’s accents and songsmarts that drew to mind a synth-driven HAIM.
Touring across the world followed with sold out shows globally, Au Revoir Simone have just announce the details of a remix album entitled Spectrums. The album features 19 remixes of ‘Move In Spectrums’ tracks by the likes of Jack Savidge (Friendly Fires), Babe, The Shoes, Clock Opera and NZCA/Lines.
In anticipation of the album’s release next month, the band have shared the track Somebody Who remixed by London’s NZCA/Lines. While the remix retains the song’s atmospheric warmth and 80’s vocals hook charm, what NZCA/Lines does do is transform the track into a French flavoured disco-jam.
Try not smile while listening to this remix; Somebody Who (NZCA/Lines Remix) is a feel-good tune that glistens with summery goodness.
