“Nouvelle Vague has traded pogoing for a suave Parisian sway, some light cabaret swing and hints of the Caribbean.” —The New York Times
 
“The French band Nouvelle Vague takes classic New Wave singles from the '80s and adds a Brazilian twist — courtesy of the other new wave: bossa nova.”
NPR “World Café”
 
“Covering new wave and punk songs in a French-tinged, bossa nova-infused style, Nouvelle Vague takes classic songs to new places.”
NPR’s “All Songs Considered”
 
“Smoky-piped chanteuses + a ’60s bossa nova beat + ’80s new wave chestnuts =
one chouette cover band.”—Entertainment Weekly
 
 
Nouvelle Vague are set to release their four-song EP Athol Brose on September 2 via Kwaidan Records / !K7, their first new recordings since 2010. Stereogumpremieres (the title track) a reworking of a Cocteau Twins classic featuring Liset Alea.

Nouvelle Vague is the brainchild of French producers Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux, who started the unique project in 2004, appropriating classic 80’s and 90’s hits from the punk, post-punk and new wave cannon and reinterpreting them as Brazilian Bossa Nova. The band employed a legion of female singers, many unknown until their performances with the band. Over the course of four records, the band sold more than one million albums worldwide including their self-titled 2004 album and 2006’s Bande A Part —which were released in the U.S.  The band toured internationally including sold out shows at Royal Albert Hall in London, The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and Olympia in Paris.
 
After a several year hiatus, Collin and Libaux embark on a new chapter in the Nouvelle Vague saga. Their new work not only contains the punk and post-punk reinventions that the band is known for but includes new remixes of Nouvelle Vague classic songs recorded with traditional live musicians and also marks the first original compositions by Libaux and Collin.
