However, in November we bring you an act who helped introduce a generation to melodic electronic music and who have produced some of the seminal tracks of our time…
Nouvelle Vague är precis allt som ett vanligt coverband inte är. Istället för att bara tolka sitt material gör man det till sitt eget genom att förvandla det till färgsprakande bossa nova.
