Photograph by Julian Marshall

Name
Olivier Libaux

Where are you from?
Paris, France.

What do you do?
I am a musician, producer, Nouvelle Vague co-founder and producer. I am also involved in solo projects, like my tribute to Queens Of The Stone Age released in 2013, called "Uncovered QOTSA".

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.

What was the first song you played on repeat?
Maybe it was 'Bohemian Rhapsody' by Queen.
I'm not sure - I was young.
Or 'Highway Star' by Deep Purple.

A song from your favourite album?
'Backwater' by Brian Eno from 'Before And After Science'.
'God Only Knows' by The Beach Boys from 'Pet Sounds'.
'Hanging Around' by The Stranglers from 'Rattus Norvegicus'.

A song you wish you had written by a music icon that has inspired you?
'Chicago' by Sufjan Stevens.

The Song with your favourite lyrics?
'Marilou Sous La Neige' by Serge Gainsbourg.
