Describe your style in three words?
Acoustic, melodic, sentimental.

How should your music be listened to?
When relaxing, dreaming or making love.

What do you miss about home when you're on tour?
My girlfriend.

What British music icons inspire your sound today?
I am less inspired by music icons nowadays, maybe Nick Drake.

Nouvelle Vague are a French New Wave band - the unique project was thought up by Olivier Libaux and Marc Collin's. First, they create Bossa Nova style musical covers of classic punk and post-punk tracks. Then, they use their coterie of female singers to do the vocals on different tracks.
