Nouvelle Vague plays Vilamoura

French band Nouvelle Vague will be playing at Oceânico Victoria Golf Course in Vilamoura from 10pm on August 12.

With a name that means ‘new wave’ in English and ‘bossa nova’ in Portuguese, Nouvelle Vague’s concept is the remaking of classic new wave singles with a Brazilian pop twist.

The band is the brainchild of French producers Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux.

Nouvelle Vague’s debut album was released in Europe in 2004 and received US distribution in 2005. Their second album, ABande a Part, arrived in summer 2006.

The following year, the band returned with Coming Home, a collection of songs from films given the Nouvelle Vague treatment.

New Wave, a collection of covers by new wave artists, arrived in 2007.

Post-punk and new wave luminaries such as Ian McCulloch, Terry Hall, Barry Adamson, and Martin Gore contributed vocals to their third album 3, which was initially released in 2008.

Tickets cost 25 Euros and can be bought at www.ticketline.pt, Fnac and Worten.
