Autre Ne Veut // In Short

stuff 3
ANV feat

Autre Ne Veut grabbed our attention last year when ‘Counting’ hit our stereo, by the time second single ‘Play by Play’ came along we knew it was love. His album ‘Anxiety’ has remained firmly in our favourites of the year, with its swelling electronics and crooning, perfect vocal talent from frontman Arthur Ashin it’s music we’ll be going back to for sometime yet. Listen to Play by Play below.

In anticipation of his London show at Netil House on November 20th (with Tropics and Eaux supporting) Arthur answers some questions for us:

If I had to describe my music in 3 words, I’d say…

I made it [kinda]

The last thing I bought was… 

This morning, an egg and cheese sandwich and a green juice. On a larger scale, a Yamaha DX200.

The most famous person I’ve met it… 

Is Steven Spielberg still massively famous?

The song I hate the most is…

Don’t really think about music in those terms.  I tend to hate dangerous cultural symbols more than music itself.

The Worst Job I’ve ever had is…

Having three middling jobs at the same time: working in the stock room/loading dock for a furniture retailer on weekends, summer camp art classes on week days and data input every week night.

If I was in a tribute band it would be a….

Honestly, it just wouldn’t happen

If I could play a gig anywhere it would be…

I had the reoccurring dream as a kid of playing on a cloud stage in the sky to an audience composed entirely of ancient Greek gods. In my dream I was also wearing some sort of white wrap with gold body armor and a helmet. I think I was also an adult and was more handsome and taller than I ended up.

I think you should listen to…

A far greater array of different types of music

If I see anyone play live it would be…

At the moment, Toots and the Maytals
