    Au Revoir Simone makes dreamy electronic pop music using elemental materials: keyboards and voices braid together in a warm thrum of whirring machines and soft melodies.

    Heather D’Angelo, Erika Forster and Annie Hart started getting together to play keyboards in Erika’s apartment in 2003. It wasn’t long before Erika’s living room was filled with vintage Casios and Yamahas rescued from garage sales, plus a beautiful wooden drum machine inherited from a movie set.

    The girls were fascinated by how easily composing came to them when they were together. Sometimes each would bring in her own idea for a song, and they would all work together until they agreed it felt perfect. Other times, they would play until a song emerged from hours of experimentation.

    Au Revoir Simone still writes songs in this highly collaborative manner. Because everyone plays the same instrument, the composing process can be more challenging than some may realize, but the band’s central motivation remains: music is magical. And playing it is a form of meditation — a blissful sensation that carries over to the listener.

    The group left the living room in the winter of 2004 and played their first show opening for Erika’s keyboard teacher’s band at a club in the West Village. Encouraged by the fact that it was not a complete disaster, Annie, Heather and Erika played out more and more in and around New York City. After building a local reputation as an up and coming indie trio, Au Revoir Simone started out on a few mini-tours of the United States.

    In 2005, the ladies released their debut album, Verses of Assurance, Comfort and Salvation. The album was released by Moshi Moshi in the U.K. and Rallye in Japan, and self-released in the U.S. They also took their keyboard show on the international road, playing the Iceland Airwaves festival and a run of dates in the U.K. with Architecture in Helsinki.

    In the summer of 2006, Au Revoir Simone toured the U.S. and the U.K. with fellow Brooklynites We Are Scientists. Playing live night after night helped them refine their live show. The tours also gave Au Revoir Simone and We Are Scientists the chance to become close friends.

    The next year saw the release of the band’s sophomore album, The Bird of Music. With a new record came more touring, this time with French duo Air and Sweden’s Peter Bjorn and John. Au Revoir Simone also embarked on their first headlining tours
