NOUVELLE VAGUE

NOUVELLE VAGUE

Friday, June 14, 2024 | GAZARTE Roof Stage

 

Dancing with the new wave!
Nouvelle Vague: the band that plays covers like… like no other!
They invite us on a music road trip without a plan but with a lot of fun and rhythm.

 

On June 14th at Gazarte, the wave of Nouvelle Vague comes to sweep Athens into a night of musical euphoria full of dreams, melodies, dance, innocence and eroticism. Summer is here and the relaxing freshness of Nouvelle Vague comes to cool us down, bring a smile to our faces and take us on exciting musical journeys.

 

Twenty years after their debut, Nouvelle Vague continue to evolve. It’s been eight years since the release of I Could Be Happy, the last album Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux created together. With Olivier’s tragic death two years ago, the group lost one of its creative minds, a brilliant and accomplished composer. Marc Collin, now alone at the helm of Nouvelle Vague, recently released their seventh album, Should I Stay Or Should I Go?.

 

They are coming to Athens with the new album and with the wonderful singers, Alonya and Marine Quéméré performing their songs – both the older ones, so loved by the Greek audience and the new ones. Nouvelle Vague, the French translation of new wave or bossa nova, the musical hybrid of the cross between Brazilian traditional musicians and jazz.

 

The Nouvelle Vague are not repeated. They do not follow a formula. And of course they don’t copy. They produce authentic music that combines a unique sense of nostalgia and melancholy with an optimism and an air of renewal. With each new release, Nouvelle Vague confirm their place on the world music map as one of the most original bands. With every note, Nouvelle Vague manage to enchant their audience and lead them on a musical journey full of emotions and twists and turns.

 

This is exactly the case with their new work, released 20 years after their debut album (which became a recording phenomenon, selling over 200,000 copies). The new album includes hits such as Should I Stay or Should I Go?, This Charming Man, You Spin Me Around, Rebel Yell, Only You and Shout.

 

With their absolutely unique aesthetics and their special feel good way, Nouvelle Vague bring the freshness that we need so much. On June 14th at Gazarte, Athens rises on the wave of Nouvelle Vague, ready to dream, sing, sway and dance to their amazing rhythms!

Friday 26 April 2024 

Gazarte Ground Stage

 

Just before they start their first European tour, Steams appear at the Gazarte Ground Stage, in their first Athenian live after a long time.

Steams are a psych rock band from Athens. In 2018 they released their 1st album ”Wild Ferment” and started a journey that sent them on many tours, 2 sold-out vinyl releases and various local festivals. In June 2022 they released their second album ”Mild Conquest”, a contemporary tragedy that expands their sound beyond the boundaries of “classic” rock by marrying traditional instruments, polyphonics and narratives with groovy rhythms, massive guitars and Dionysian outbursts. They have performed alongside The Cure, The Black Angels, Peter Murphy (Bauhaus), Khruangbin Lumerians, etc.

 

Their 3rd album, “Vile Wonders”, is expected to be released in 2024.

 

Psycada

Psycada got their name from some psychedelic cicadas that managed to infiltrate some early home recordings of the band, in the summer of 21′. They tend to play neo-psychedelic rock, put out their first album (Hiking Lung) in July 22′ and have done two live shows.

 

In their third live show they will play several songs from their upcoming album, which might be released in 2024.

MAUSTETYTÖT

MAUSTETYTÖT

GAZARTE Ground Stage

FRIDAY 31 MAY 2024

 

Maustetytöt: an anti-pop band that writes great pop songs! The musical charm of contrasts…from Finland to Athens!

 

Maustetytöt: The two Finnish sisters, already “starring” in the music scene of their homeland, and not only! This winter they “dressed” with their performance the black comedy Fallen Leaves by arthouse veteran Aki Kaurismäki, and became talk of the town worldwide. In the film they sing one of their most successful songs, project themselves in a dark karaoke bar, like plastic dolls, with hardly any movement of their bodies and faces, and take us on a journey into their occult world. Will the end of this story be happy or not?

 

Maustetytöt with their unusual musical approach – unexpectedly simple stage presence, frozen faces, surrealistic pessimistic and laconic lyrics against a background of optimistic pop rhythms, deal with “difficult” topics such as drinking, violence, mental illness and war. Maustetytöt is definitely the other side of the coin of the happiest country in the world – and that seems to lead to an excellent recipe for success!

 

Maustetytöt themselves declare that they play electronic pop and their lyrics, which are imbued with black humour, often speak of the Finns’ almost innate sadness “Maybe pessimism is something that lives in most Finns”, says Anna. “It’s cold and dark up here, so being happy can be difficult.”

 

In May 2024 the band will embark on their first major European tour in Germany, France, the Netherlands, Primavera in Spain and of course, on May 31, they will perform at the Gazarte Ground Stage in Athens!

FRIDAY 29 MARCH 2023

In the UNESCO lists, Pesaro, Italy is listed as a ‘Creative City of Music’, mainly because it is the birthplace of Gioacchino Rossini, composer of ‘The Barber of Seville’ and ‘William Tell’.

 

Secondarily, and just next to the famous operas, indie post punk is well represented by Soviet Soviet, who since 2008 have been grabbing every live opportunity that arises and building their reputation as one of the most energetic live acts on the European continent.

 

From 2013 onwards, their discography is regularly enriched with coldwave & artpunk touches, properly structured to work ideally in live show conditions. This is exactly their characteristic that the Greek public will have the opportunity to experience in their upcoming performance, on Friday, March 29 at Gazarte, for a unique appearance from a figure at the peak of its creative period.

A few words about BadBadNotGood

BadBadNotGood formed in 2010, moving between three and four members before forming their current lineup in 2015. The band, aka Alexander Sowinski (drums), Chester Hansen (bass) and Leland Whitty (guitar and woodwinds), met in the jazz program at Humber College in Toronto. At the time, instead of working with traditional jazz standards, they decided to bypass them and draw from hip hop and other contemporary genres to create a unique sound rooted in black American music. The 2021 album Talk Memory is their fifth official release and pays tribute to those musicians and songwriters who were the band’s primary influences.
