Not sure how long this tactic will work but for the moment listening to Nouvelle Vague’s (!) stylistic takes on some of the better 80’s standards is a refreshing departure. The French duo of Marc Collins and Olivier Libaux are responsible for the overhauls taking songs such the Cure’s ‘A Forest’ and Echo and the Bunnyman’s ‘The Killing Moon’ and giving them a brand new makeover. They are not always successful as evidenced by the lumpen rendition of ‘Fade To Grey’ yet more often than not the results are a pleasing diversion. ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ is superb, an electronic classic completely revitalised by a bossa nova beat and deliciously lithe female vocals. As Depeche Mode would rightly concur ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ now has a brand new life. KD
