NOUVELLE Vague are set to play live at City Varieties in Leeds on October 13. The collective will be on the road with lead singers Phoebe Killdeer and Melanie Pain for the string of dates.

After this they will swap the singers for Elodie Frege and Melanie Pain as they tour in celebration of their 15th anniversary.

Nouvelle Vague was created as a unique project after Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux decided to combine Bossa Nova with New Wave music.

A spokesman said: “By appropriating the punk and post-punk canon and running it through the Bossa Nova filter, they reinvented the cover band genre, revealing new and brilliant talents along the way.”

Nouvelle Vague’s first two albums, ‘Nouvelle Vague’ and ‘Bande A Part’ defined their unique sound with Bossa versions of New Wave Classics.

Their third album ‘NV3’ (2009) featured collaborations with Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore, Ian McCullouch from Echo and the Bunnymen, Terry Hall from The Specials, Barry Adamson and The Saints.
