Nouvelle Vague - Our lips are sealed
Nouvelle Vague is a French cover band led by musicians Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux. Their name means "new wave" in French. Their name refers/alludes to their "Frenchness" and "artiness" (the '60s new wave of cult French cinema), the source of their songs (all covers of punk rock, post-punk, and New Wave songs), and their use of '60s bossa nova-style arrangements.
Members, former members and contributors include French artists who are now well known as solo performers, each considered as part of what is called the "Renouveau de la chanson Française" (the "Renewal of French chanson"). Those artists are Camille, Phoebe Killdeer, Mélanie Pain, Marina Céleste and Gerald Toto. Mareva Galanter joined the roster of vocalists in 2010.
Here is their cover of "Our lips are sealed," featuring Terry Hall & Marina Celeste. The video is composed of clips from the 1929 Louise Brooks film, Diary of a Lost Girl.
