The time seems right to write a new chapter in the Nouvelle Vague saga: with a new album ‘I Could Be Happy‘, Athol Brose is the first EP from the band and its coterie of female vocalists since 2010. Nouvelle Vague and Friends is more of a nexus of forthcoming projects: a new album comprised of punk and post punk standards imbued with the inimitable Nouvelle Vague touch. For the first time original songs are written by Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux and demonstrate that the two producers are not just genius arrangers.
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.
Athol Brose EP Release on 2nd September 2016
