Nouvelle Vague Biography

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.
Now having sold over a million records since 2004 Nouvelle Vague are back with their fifth album I Could Be Happy, which will be released in September 2016. The full band are back to celebrate the release around the main group members of Marc Collin, Olivier Libaux, Mélanie Pain, Elodie Frégé and Liset Alea.
