NOUVELLE VAGUE

Bobbi

 

The French collective Nouvelle Vague became successful over ten years ago with a concept that worked wonders: new wave songs from the 80s wrapped in a bossa nova sound. Songs of Joy Division, Depeche Mode , The Sisters of Mercy and Dead Kennedy’s in a way you’ve never heard before: with a Brazillian rythm, with sensual chanteuse and a very talented band. Even skeptics that visited shows admitted that Bizarre Love Triangle is the perfect sound to lounge to. You can see it in real life yourself on October 26th in PAARD.

Their debut album ‘Nouvelle Vague‘ from 2004 has become a modern classical. It’s a versatile album with lots of experimental sounds, covered in a strong concept of postpunk and new wave which is translated to easy listening and bossa nova. The band sold over a million albums under the directions of producer-duo Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux’ and they performed at places like the Royal Albert Hall and the Hollywood Bowl. Their newest album ‘Curiousities‘ shines a new light on these sessions with new unreleased covers of The Smits, Devo and U2.
