With five studio albums and extensive global tours under its belt, Nouvelle Vague now celebrates its fifteenth anniversary.
The band will be celebrating with an international unplugged tour in 2019, in keeping with the show's original 2004 incarnation.
Premiered in the UK in June of 2018, Nouvelle Vague's latest live production finds the band returning to its roots: an acoustic guitar, a few keyboards, a smattering of ambience, and two singers (Mélanie Pain, Elodie Frégé, or Phoebe Killdeer), who interpret the band's iconic songs.
"Out of this world ", " Hautingly beautiful ", "Best show ever": the reviews of the first English performances speak volumes.
2019 will also see the release of the Nouvelle Vague By Nouvelle Vague documentary, which recounts the band singular history, as well as two new studio albums.
Nouvelle Vague By Nouvelle Vague directed by Marc Collin, retraces the history of the project, from its genesis to the production of each of the albums, the meetings with the main singers, and their multiple tours to the four corners of the globe.
The film, which culls the band's archives (concerts, TV shows, personal photo, interviews), reveals the soul and the life of the group, which has revolutionized the concept of " cover band ".
Two albums are about to be released: "Rarities" (rare and bonus tracks) and "Curiosities".
Composer/producer with an eye for talent - a quick description that neatly resumes the talents of Marc Collin, who over the years has progressed from the studio to playing live.
Whether on projects like Nouvelle Vague (often a launchpad for an impressive list of artists on the rise) or with artists such as Yasmine Hamdan (an iconic French-Lebanese singer), Phoebe Killdeer (now known worldwide for her remix by The Avener) and Jay-Jay Johanson (the Scandinavian crooner), Marc Collin nurtures international artists whose particular sensibility and experience appeal to him.
Particularly careful with his production values, Marc Collin is above all a lover of old synths, the ones that left their mark on the 80s, and knows how to get the best out of them for his modern productions by addressing a wide audience.
With its meticulous production characterised by a certain sweetness and subtlety, whether in English, French or more exotic languages, Kwaidan Records is a Parisian institution that welcomes artists from anywhere in the world, helping them develop and confirm their talent.
