Sunday Suggestion – Au Revoir Simone – Crazy

Au Revoir Simone are a New York group consisting of Erika Forster, Annie Hart and Heather D’Angelo and last year they released Move In Spectrums. It was an album full of sweet and unashamed pop with more intricate melodies and lyrical dimensions that kept us all ‘warm and fuzzy’ in the darkening and colder nights of the Autumn it was released into. One track which best carries out it’s task is the single ‘Crazy’, which I reviewed a year ago to this day.  There are more ‘traditional’ instrumentals in this song compared to their usual synth heavy efforts. The deep bass line along with the whirring riffs around it, allows for them to be placed thinly on top of it all and gives the song real light and shade. The percussion offers up a sturdy rhythm which lets everything else churn out the melody. The vocals have their own echo and have a subtle rise and fall with each line and they’re smooth and easily sounded out above the music. This song is a great piece of synth-pop fused with lo-fi tinged, indie melodies and chord progressions. The lyrics are simple and catchy too.
