Covers, B-Sides, and Rarities: Au Revoir Simone's "Oh, You Pretty Things"

Though being an ardent follower to the music of Brooklyn based synth pop trio, Au Revoir Simone, I rarely hear the girls performing cover songs, though I’m sure, there comes those odd days, where they don’t strictly stick to their own repertoire and insert a cover or two to perform. But when these Brooklyn gals do perform a cover, they do it…fairly well, decent so to speak. The band’s vocal part softly seeps in, in an effortless and languorous approach that is proverbial of them, because any other way, then it wouldn’t be the Au Revoir Simone we’ve previously came to know and love.

So here’s that David Bowie cover-- the Au Revoir Simone-ized version of ‘Oh, You Pretty Things’.
