Au (pronounced "Ay-you") is the work of multi-instrumentalist Luke Wyland and drummer Dana Valatka. With a knack for unusual instrumentation, a wonderfully light touch, and an unabashed commitment to experimentation, Au manages to erase the high art/low art boundary between American contemporary classical music and American pop music - blending the two into a simple and compelling verse-chorus celebration. This is avant-pop that will not disappoint.
