Album review: Au Revoir Simone
Still Night, Still Light
= Youth’, thus ‘Still Night…’ is rich in OTT romanticism cut with vague dread. ‘We Are Here’, for instance, wears its melancholy so languidly it could’ve fallen off the back of The Virgin Suicides’ soundtrack. ‘Knight Of Wands’ shows how cleverly they’ve slashed the sonic clutter, offering the simplicity of ‘My Sweet Lord’ as rewritten by Stereolab. Music to stick pins in voodoo dolls of the popular kids by.
