Nouvelle Vague

Nouvelle Vague have been touring the world for almost 5 years. With constant killer live reviews, they are currently touring their forth studio album, continuing to thrill audiences around the world. Nouvelle Vague is the marriage of New Wave and Bossa Nova, two incredibly prescient yet improbable musical bedfellows. Their name is a play on words referring simultaneously to their “Frenchness” and “artiness” (the ’60s new wave of cult French cinema), the source of their songs (all covers of punk rock, post-punk, and New Wave songs), and their use of ’60s Bossa nova-style arrangements.
