New Wave in New Format

Nouvelle Vague, a French band founded by seasoned music producers Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux, are playing at the Kwadrat Club in Cracow Nov. 17.

The band’s name is borrowed from the French New Wave (Nouvelle Vague) cinema movement of the 1960s, but it also refers to punk and new wave hits from the early 1980s which the band cover on their albums. Nouvelle Vague’s first, eponymous album was released in 2004 and featured new versions of classic new wave songs by the likes of Joy Division, the Dead Kennedys, The Clash and Depeche Mode. All were arranged as laid-back bossa nova tracks with female vocals. The follow-up Bande a Part (2006) album spawned more covers, including “Ever Fallen in Love?” made famous by the Buzzcocks, “Blue Monday” by New Order, “The Killing Moon” by Echo and the Bunnymen and “Heart of Glass” by Blondie. The new versions drew attention in the advertising world and several Nouvelle Vague tracks went on to be used in advertising campaigns in Britain and the United States. Female vocalists who teamed up with the band during recording sessions for Bande a Part included Mélanie Pain, Marina Celeste and Phoebe Killdeer.

In November 2010, Nouvelle Vague released their fourth studio album, Couleurs sur Paris, which was their first to be entirely inspired by French music of the 1970s and 1980s.
