Love Will Tear Us Apart  performed by  Nouvelle Vague  (2004)
Composed by Curtis/Hook/Morris/Sumner
Arranged by Marc Collin/Olivier Libaux
From: France
Recommended by eftimihn [profile] on Monday 15th November 2004

Nouvelle Vague is the project of Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux, who basically took classic late 70s/early 80s new wave songs and transformed them into light, easy going, predominantly bossa tinged tracks, including heavily accented, whispery Longet-esque vocals. They claim these young vocalists never even heard the original songs. It works brilliantly for sure on "Love will tear us apart" where they manage to interpret the song as a melancholic, chilled stroll down a beach with sparse percussion, acoustic bass and guitar, vibraphone and some samples of waves rushing on the seaside. I'd like to think even Ian Curtis might smile down on this cover version...

from Nouvelle Vague, available on CD (Peacefrog)

Other Versions: Another light, breezy version by "Prozak for Lovers" (1998)
