Nouvelle Vague - Should I Stay Or Should I Go

Marc Collin, the creator of Nouvelle Vague, never anticipated
producing a fifth album for the project, originally envisioning it as
a one-off tribute to post-punk through bossa nova. However, the
unexpected success of their debut album, featuring unique
covers of songs by XTC, Public Image Limited, Josef K, and Joy
Division, propelled Nouvelle Vague into unforeseen popularity.
Collin attributes their success to the timing of the post-punk
revival and the emotional resonance achieved by blending bossa
nova with melancholic music. He also suggests that their French
identity played a significant role, as their willingness to
reinterpret songs without treating them as sacred, along with
French vocals, contributed to the project's appeal.
Despite initially considering Nouvelle Vague as a short-lived
endeavor, Collin reflects on its enduring success over 20 years,
marked by diverse albums covering French new wave artists,
original compositions, and unique reinterpretations of various
musical styles. The latest album, "Should I Stay Or Should I Go,"
continues the trend, featuring pop-infused renditions of post-
punk classics. Collin sees no reason to end Nouvelle Vague, as
streaming keeps their music alive and the audience remains
interested, even attracting younger listeners. Additionally, Collin
notes the project's influence on the trend of radically reworked
cover versions in advertisements and movies, highlighting the
enduring impact of Nouvelle Vague's innovative approach to
