Autre Ne Veut - Counting

Autre Ne Veut is Arthur Ashin, a solo act from Brooklyn.  I've seen his music classified as avant-pop on numerous occasions, but I'm not sure if that really describes his sound appropriately.  The only problem is, I can't seem to think of a single word that sums up his sound as a whole.  It definitely possesses some pop qualities, but the R&B infused vocals in his newest single mixes things up a bit.  When compared to Autre Ne Veut's Body EP, "Counting" sounds much more structured and overall, easily accessible. It's kind of like Active Child's distant cousin, who happens to be best friends with How To Dress Well.

Autre Ne Veut's sophomore album, Anxiety, is scheduled for release on February 12, via Software.  To download "Counting", along with a remix featuring Mykki Blanco, look over here.
