Nouvelle Vague + Okou
ALTHOUGH REGIONAL SHOWS HAVE BEEN POSTPONED, THIS SHOW WILL STILL GO AHEAD AS PLANNED.
Bossa covers of eighties classics; lounge-tastic takes punk staples; smooth, breathy, jazz covers of cult rock and pop anthems, Nouvelle Vague may not write the material but they make it entirely their own. Part homage, part re-imagining, they bring a fresh and often unexpected perspective to an era of often dour and coldly affected music, giving a warm glow to everything they touch.
‘From Blondie to the Buzzcocks, Blancmange to the Bunnymen; Joy Division, The Clash, the Cramps, the Cure and more, Nouvelle has given them all a warm glowing sense of fun and ‘lashings of nowish cool.’ The Guardian
