France's Nouvelle Vague, the masters of musical interpretation and rearrangement, will play the Palladium club in Warsaw Sept. 19.

The group was formed in 2003 and consists of experienced producers Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux and three female singers-Marina Celeste, Mélanie Pain and Phoebe Killdeer. Nouvelle Vague came to wider attention with their debut, eponymous album that featured surprising versions of 1980s new wave music, mostly in bossa nova arrangements. In Warsaw, Nouvelle Vague will be promoting their latest album, NV3, on which they go a step further, drawing on country and bluegrass inspirations. The band team up on the album with musicians including Martin Gore of Depeche Mode and Ian McCulloch of Echo & The Bunnymen. The album also features a touch of Poland in the form of a duet with singer Ania D±browska.

The French group played in Warsaw last year during the Francophonic Festival.

Nouvelle Vague tunes may sound familiar to the public because they have been used in commercials, including the Polish campaign for the Reserved clothing company.

Nouvelle Vague are controversial with fans of new wave music accusing the band of being overly commercial and disrespectful to the genre. Polish audiences can make their own minds up in Warsaw and at two more concerts Nouvelle Vague will play in Wroc³aw and Cracow.
