Couleurs sur Paris

Nouvelle Vague

Nouvelle Vague, New Wave and Bossa Nova:
three things that - in their respective languages
- all mean exactly the same thing. Three
passions that Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux
have been attempting - since 2004 - to marry
together via their Nouvelle Vague project. The
ingredients? The swooping elegance of Bossa
Nova, the melancholic melodies of New Wave
and the distanced approach of the fi lms of the
Nouvelle Vague.
The group's modus operandi is as follows:
transpose classic songs and help people to
(re)discover obscure (or not) new wave tracks
with a fresh take, decidedly modern. The art of
recording cover versions is a delicate one, but
the group's reinterpretations of Guns of Brixton,
Dance With Me and Love Will Tear Us Apart
have been heard around the world.
700,000 albums sold, hundreds of concerts
sold out all over the globe and female singers
that give the live shows a real boost ; the
originality of Camille, the elegance of Melanie
Pain, the sensuality of Phoebe Killdeer and the
onstage craziness of Nadeah Miranda have
moved the crowds wherever they sing. This chic
aestheticism is added to by Helena Noguerra
and Mareva Galanter, who now accompany
the group during their concerts.
If the fi rst three albums were very much
attached to UK new wave and post punk,
Couleurs sur Paris, the group's fourth album
revisits the French New Wave that spread
throughout the country during the 70s and
on into much of the following decade.
To celebrate this ‘new wave made in France',
the usual line-up of female vocalists has been
extended far beyond the usual confi nes of the
group, with each track sung by an artist from
the current French scene, the very scene that
grew up with these songs and is proud of it.
