French for “I think of none other,” New York’s enigmatic Arthur Ashin, also known as Autre Ne Veut, makes music that falls somewhere between ’80s R&B hooks and melodies, and the blurry sounds of Ariel Pink. Atre Ne Veut’s self-titled debut album arrived in August 2010 on Olde English Spelling Bee and Upstairs, the label owned by Oneohtrix Point Never’s Daniel Lopatin.
Autre Ne Veut supported Hooray for Earth during their residency at Piano’s that fall, and played some shows with Zambri and Mirror Mirror in early 2011. That year, Autre Ne Veut also released the Body EP via Hippos in Tanks and appeared on Ford & Lopatin’s Channel Pressure. Autre Ne Veut returned in early 2013 with Anxiety, an album equally inspired by that condition and by the music of Dr. Luke, David Byrne, and Katy Perry.
Autre Ne Veut’s third LP, Age of Transparency, acted as the second volume in an intended trilogy based around the difficulty of achieving personal connection in an impersonal era. It was released in late 2015 by Downtown Records.
Autre Ne Veut is available for corporate events, private shows, milestone celebrations (birthday, anniversary), fundraisers, festivals, and more.
