NOUVELLE VAGUE

Infused with equal measures of punk spirit and bossa nova charm, French duo Nouvelle Vague has turned the cover song into a fine art. Best known for simmering down 1980s tracks by the likes of The Clash, Joy Division and Bauhaus into airy, lilting melodies, the nymph-like chanteuses bring a whole new dimension to punk and new wave classics while keeping the spirit of the original burning bright. Imagine Ian Curtis getting mellow in the forest with maracas in his hands and you get the idea.
