Nouvelle Vague

Distinctive vibes from familiar sources

Bossa nova versions of punk and post-punk classics may not sound like a sure-fire recipe for success, but it’s served Nouvelle Vague very well indeed.

The tour marks 15 years in the business, during which time they’ve worked with Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore, Ian McCulloch of Echo and the Bunnymen, and The Specials’ Terry Hall. They play The Junction on 21 April, tickets £30.
