Brooklyn's Au Revoir Simone, who are celebrating their 10-year anniversary this year, are back with their new album, Move in Spectrums, which will be out via Moshi Moshi/Instant on September 24. Cover art is below. The record was produced by Violens' Jorge Elbrecht, who also produced ARS member Erika Spring's 2012 solo single (and albums by No Joy, Ice Choir and others). ARS' brand of synthpop has always been pretty minimal but they seem to be heading into decidedly more dancey territory here, which is a good thing I think. At least on the album's first single is "Somebody Who," which you can stream below.

The ladies haven't announced any tour dates in their hometown or anywhere else in North America, but they will be playing shows in Europe around the release of the album. Those dates are listed below.

But I doubt they "would" with you, so keep dreaming.

It's disappointing and sad that the above commenters ignore all the content of this post to simply reduce these talented (and incidentally beautiful) musicians to "would I or wouldn't I". But to do it anonymously is disgusting, cowardly, and shows their true character as sad internet trolls pretending to have any "choice" when it comes to romance, or in their case, lack thereof.

That's not true, 1:25. My comment above at 2:26 is referring to the music. I listened to it once, decided it was crap.

"Fade Into You" sounds a lot like a remix of "Knockin' On Heaven's Door", though.

This song makes me love life more. It has the DNA of those hopeful 'coming of age' synth songs of the early 80's combined with early hip hop beats. Totally loving what this song does to me. Especially the break down at 2:18, it does indeed take me over.
