Brooklyn’s girly-girl synth trio Au Revoir Simone are known for their whimsical blip and blop keyboard ditties. But thanks to the power of the remix, the ladies have a whole new sound — one that’s darker, more industrial, and, well, a little scary.
Here, London mixmaster Mark-Anthony Tieku has taken “The Way to There,” a serene track from Au Revoir Simone’s 2007 album The Bird of Music, and added menacing synths and screeching white noises. Download the track below, and check out the rest of Reverse Migration November 11 via Our Secret Record Company. Grab another remix over at Stereogum.
