not your usual stuff,
This review is from: Nouvelle Vague - The Singers (Audio CD)
You get 12 songs which are pretty much the accoustic sound that we are all used to. the singers features well basically all the girls plus guy who have contributed to the voice of nouvelle vague. With nouvelle vague being such an original covers band getting much of their material from the 80's indie/alternative scene it kind of lacks for want of a better word a great cure cover for example. There are a couple of french songs and each of the artists does put a good effort into the music with always a lovely voice which comes to be expected from NV.There are even a couple of songs which are 40s influenced ,think of glen miller in the mood time period but dont let this put you off as it is a good album and beautifully sung.It may not appeal to everyone basically due to the fact that it lacks some of the super indie hits like what we generally get from NV. Die hards will always buy it but dont let that put you off as it is very well done.Its just a little different.
