POPMATTERS SPONSOR—It was a moment of pure serendipity when Erika Forster and Annie Hart struck up a casual conversation on a train in 2003, leading them to discover their common desire to start a keyboard-focused musical group. Enter Heather D’Angelo, who teamed with the pair to complete the formation of what is now “Au Revoir Simone”, an all-female trio hailing from Brooklyn. Since their debut, Au Revoir Simone has impressed critics and audiences alike with their folksy pop-synth sound in albums like Verses of Comfort, Assurance & Salvation and Still Night, Still Light.

POPMATTERS SPONSOR -- Just as folk music provides a basis for the synth music of Au Revoir Simone, so too does Erika’s striped sweater act as a basic essential: a starting point from which the artist builds and transforms, dazzling audiences along the way.

POPMATTERS SPONSOR—Some in the music industry have labeled the musical style of the three-woman band Au Revoir Simone, started in 2003, as “folk”. Though this may be at the heart of their sound, many layers of other elements combine, making it impossible to categorize their music strictly in this way. Vocalist Erika Forster herself once described the vibe of the band’s album Still Night, Still Light by saying, “It’s a folk album without folk instruments”, implying that though folk music is an influence on the band, they utilize other tools and sounds to embellish it beyond this categorization. Similarly, the sweater Miss Forster sports here, part of GAP’s spring collection, acts as a base for the overall look, but is transformed depending on the accessories she pairs with it.

POPMATTERS SPONSOR—Erika Forster, pictured here in a versatile leather jacket from GAP’s upcoming spring collection, represents one third of the talented all-female band known as Au Revoire Simone, which broke onto the musical scene in 2003. Along with bandmates Annie Hart and Heather D’Angelo, Erika is responsible for creating a musical style that is perhaps best described by British Vogue as “dreamy synth-pop”.
