Bossa Nova = Nouvelle Vague = New Wave. This transliteration was the starting point for Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux’s unique project, which, by appropriating the punk and post-punk cannon and running it through the Bossa Nova filter, reinvented the cover band genre, revealing new and brilliant talents along the way: Camille, Phoebe Killdeer (whose Fade Out Lines was remixed by The Avener,) Élodie Frégé, Mélanie Pain, Liset Alea...
The time seems right to write a new chapter in the Nouvelle Vague saga with a new album “I Could Be Happy” released a few months ago. Algo Familiar is the last EP of the band. Nouvelle Vague and Friends is thus more of a nexus of forthcoming projects: a new album comprised of punk and post punk standards imbued with the inimitable Nouvelle Vague touch and for the first time original songs written by Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux that will create the surprise by demonstrating that the two producers are not as genius arrangers.
