About Nouvelle Vague

With a name that means "new wave" in English and "bossa nova" in Portuguese, Nouvelle Vague's moniker neatly sums up the group's concept: remaking new wave singles with a Brazilian pop twist. The band recruited French and Brazilian vocalists who were unfamiliar with the original versions of songs like Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart" and XTC's "Making Plans for Nigel" to ensure that their renditions had their own identity. Their self-titled debut appeared in 2004, followed by A Bande à Part in 2006. The following year, the team returned with Coming Home. New Wave, a collection of covers by new wave artists, also arrived in 2007. ~ Heather Phares
