Quirky popsters Nouvelle Vague launch their 15th anniversary tour at Brighton’s CHALK on Tues 4 May 2020

Nouvelle Vague announce Brighton date on 15 Year Anniversary Tour.

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, Nadeah, Mélanie Pain, and Liset Alea.

The group’s first two albums, Nouvelle Vague (2004) and Bande A Part (2006) defined their unique sound with Bossa versions of new wave classics. Their third album NV3 (2009) featured collaborations with Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore, Ian McCullouch from Echo and the Bunnymen, Terry Hall from The Specials, Barry Adamson, The Saints & Minimal Compact.

Nouvelle Vague are Marc Collin, Olivier Libaux, Mélanie Pain, Elodie Frégé, and Phoebe Killdeer. Now, in celebration of a decade and half in the game, the quirky popsters launch their anniversary tour at Brighton’s CHALK on Tues 4 May.
