It does sound more like Au Revoir Simone is a real band now and less like a vintage synth club, but it's a trade-off that's worth it thanks to just how good the record sounds. 

The 405

Like the best pop music Move In Spectrums manages to directly instil a particular feeling within the listener, but Au Revoir Simone manage to do this without resorting to cliché.


Luckily for us, Au Revoir Simone are able to achieve this level of sonic diversity and experimentation without ever straying too far from their roots or own sensibilities.

Drowned in Sound

It’s an invisible force that sneaks up on you, casting you in its shadow; and slowly, with each pulse and every temperature shift, it becomes your whole world.

The Line of Best Fit

There’s a couple of minor stumbles, and it has a knack for dithering, but when it comes together, it really, really comes together.


Move In Spectrums is a very good record but it’s not a great one. The reason for this is quite simple: the album is lacking the one absolute killer track that would elevate the album to a higher status.
