Annie Hart is a keyboardist, songwriter and vocalist. She primarily composes and performs in the band Au Revoir Simone. In 2017, she released a solo album entitled Impossible Accomplice. She has contributed vocals to other artists’ projects and appeared on the 2017 series of Twin Peaks.
Annie Hart was born on Long Island, New York, and is one of three founding members of synth-pop pioneers Au Revoir Simone. She has been in other groups including Uninhabitable Mansions, featuring members of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, and collaborated as a composer with French band Air for their soundtrack to Les Voyages Dans La Lune. In 2017, she began releasing music under her own name apart from Au Revoir Simone and embarked on a world tour.
She has appeared on screen along with the other members of Au Revoir Simone in Episodes 4 and 9 of the 2017 series of Twin Peaks. Her song, “Hard To Be Still,” appeared on episode one of the Netflix series, Gypsy, starring Naomi Watts.
Hart’s music is considered minimal synth-pop. New York Magazine’s Bedford and Bowery describes it as “resonant, tender, and not too sweet”. She primarily composes on electric piano and vintage synthesizers.
