Annie Hart
Annie Hart
Annie Hart is best known as one-third of Au Revoir Simone, the beloved all-female synth trio that counts David Lynch as a superfan (and also recently appeared on Twin Peaks). But with the eight tracks on her solo debut, Impossible Accomplice (Instant Records, Sept. 15), Annie will emerge as an electrifying artist and producer in her own right.
During the band's hiatus, she has been crafting pop songs on classic synthesizers, with a less-is-more approach, writing and engineering the record on her own in the basement of her Brooklyn home, sneaking sessions in while her children were sleeping. Greatly influenced by the spare synthesizer sounds of Laurie Spiegel and the stripped-down sensibility of artists like Alex Cameron, Annie has embraced her love of meticulously crafting the perfect tone to match the emotion of a song.

In songs such as the first single, "Hard To Be Still" (featured on an episode of Netflix series, Gypsy, starring Naomi Watts), Annie cuts back the layers to reveal a rawer version of the dreamy synth pop her band was famous for forging. Solo, Annie has opened for artists such as M. Ward and Neko Case.
Alex Pasternak
PASTERNAK: You will find him in seedy, pitch-black discotecas at night and on pristine, white beaches at sunrise. An unsolved mystery of tropical rhythm and pulsing synthesizers. A casual whirlwind of uncut ecstasy and effortless cool. A nocturnal master of dancefloor intrigue and international beats.

PASTERNAK: What secrets lie behind those sunglasses? Islands from Manhattan to the Maldives contain no greater complexity than this island of a man. As if surrounded by an ocean of delight itself, he crafts intricate vessels of sound with which to traverse if never tame the endless waves of evening adventure.

PASTERNAK: He knows neither shame nor restraint. His only true companion is the night, his only rival the morning.
