The Nouvelle Vague project was born of Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux's desire to dust off and adapt new wave standards in a bossa nova style. Over the years, Nouvelle Vague has welcomed a host of singers on increasingly eclectic covers. In 2004, they released their first album, simply entitled Nouvelle Vague. The album featured covers of Depeche Mode, The Clash, The Cure, Joy Division and Dead Kennedys. A very British first album in spirit (as well as in the choice of groups), where the typically London new wave atmosphere predominates, but revised in a Caribbean version. To mark the band's 20th anniversary, we're proud to announce the reissue of this innovative album. Enriched with numerous bonuses, including a session on KCRW radio where the band's constant reinvention reaches it's apogee.
