STREAM: Erika Spring - Hidden
We’ve long been fans of Au Revoir Simone’s fluttering coffeepop, their doll-like quality, their birdlike perching and hopping (four years on this site, by my count). So please excuse us if we are automatically joyed by Erika Spring (the musical nom de plume of Erika Forster, singer and keyboardist for ARS). But you needn’t forgive us for long; a mere moment into “Hidden” and you’ll be bewitched too, what with the driving synthpop, soft but cutting vocals, forest beats and afternoon light melodies. Beautiful, beautiful, and a-coming on a 5-track EP through Cascine on July 10.
