‘Bizarre Love Triangle’ is the latest track from Nouvelle Vague, taken from their upcoming 24-track album ‘Rarities’, released next week. The Parisian collective released their eponymous debut album in 2004, which was very well received. After five studio albums and extensive global tours, Nouvelle Vague is now celebrating their fifteenth anniversary after becoming a global phenomenon.
‘Bizarre Love Triangle’ is an interesting and bold take on New Order’s track; with entrancing vocals. Nouvelle Vague (which translate into ‘New Wave’) have reinterpreted the song with a dreamy 1950s and ’60s version. It’s done in such a way that the audience almost forgets the original version of the song ever existed.
The accompanying music video captures a performance by singers Camille and Mélanie Pain, alongside band members Olivier Libaux and Marc Collin. The video is kept simple to focus on their unique voices and let the music speak for itself.
Nouvelle Vague’s album ‘Rarities’ (digital only) will be released on 15th February. The album is made up of bonuses and B-sides released on special editions, compilations, 45s, and other physical media over the course of these fifteen years, but long out of print.
Nouvelle Vague will also be releasing an album ‘Curiosities’ on 22nd April.
The band begins their UK tour in April 2019 and you can see dates here.
