Nouvelle Vague, New Wave and Bossa Nova: three things that – in their respective languages – all mean exactly the same thing. Three passions that Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux have been attempting since 2004 to marry together via their Nouvelle Vague project. The swooping elegance of Bossa Nova, the melancholic melodies of New Wave and the distanced approach of the films of the Nouvelle Vague are the ingredients that Collin and Libaux meld together. The group’s modus operandi is as follows: transpose classic songs and help people to (re)discover obscure (or not) new wave tracks with a fresh take, decidedly modern. The art of recording cover versions is a delicate one, but the group’s reinterpretations of “Guns of Brixton”, “Dance With Me” and “Love Will Tear Us Apart” have been heard around the world.
