Back when we reviewed Au Revoir Simone's last album we likened it to the soundtrack to Sofia Copolla's movieVirgin Suicides. In retrospect it is perhaps clear that whilst the set-square-math, wide-eyed walks home from high-school of the band's second album The Bird of Music was Copolla all over, their last album Still Night, Still Light was pure David Lynch: a spooky mix of dream-like sounds and cold fear.
It is pleasing then if not surprising to learn that the two first collaborated back in January 2007 in an interview setting at Barnes & Noble Union Square, with David Lynch reading from his book Catching the Big Fish... with Au Revoir Simone playing background music and songs from their second album.
It's a partnership that lead to a mutual appreciation and meant that when Au Revoir Simone were premiering the video for 'Shadows' David Lynch's DLF.tv website was chosen for the exclusive screening. You can check out the video above - directed by Brendan Colthurst and Vikram Gandhi it is a slow-boiled, minimal yet beautiful insight into what makes the band so different.
