Erika Spring EP - CASCINE
FILTER Grade: 83%
By Tamara Vallejos on August 16, 2012
Erika Spring, one-third of Brooklyn’s Au Revoir Simone, took advantage of the band’s recent hiatus to put forth her solo debut: a 16-minute EP that has similarities to the trio’s dreamy synth-pop, but takes the music into lusher, sexier ’80s territory. Intro “Happy at Your Gate” is particularly assertive in its sonic seduction, with Spring’s sweet vocals winking at innocence. “Were you waiting for me?” she breathily asks, and the only answer possible is: oh god, yes.
