I usually have the music that is submitted to us playing in the background while I work, and once in a while I stop, turn it up and go, ‘wait who is this?‘. I’ve just finished listening to AOU’s new demo EP and didn’t want to waste a minute in sharing it with you.
AOU, are a new musical collective based between London and Paris. Their style is described as indie/electro/tropical and they’re influenced by groups ranging from Kraftwerk and Joy Division to Metronomy and Air. Personally I feel they have a similar sound to Lower Dens with their progressive rocky beats and melodic vocals.
AOU are William Moreau, Guy Stevenson, Quentin Sarda and Mattis Moviken. The group came together in 2012, each member hail from different musical backgrounds which contribute to their unique sound. Their EP is currently available to stream and free to download for a limited period from thier website, get it while it’s hot: www.aouband.co.uk
