Marc Collin’s bold new project, Strange As Angels is available! In homage to the abundant repertoire of The Cure, the artist is in collaboration with the divine Chrystabell (muse of David Lynch).
To venture into the musical labyrinth of The Cure, it was necessary to dare! The head of Nouvelle Vague did it, with the grace and delicacy that we know him.
With Chrystabell’s ethereal and magnetic voice, Robert Smith’s hits are dressed in new sound textures, as tasty as they are surprising! With a nod to The Cure’s original homemade video, this sequence takes the viewer on a journey through a world of models that come to life to bring the song to life, like a giant music box.
Who better than Marc Collin to venture into the Cure’s musical labyrinth? The Nouvelle Vague’s head of thought goes there on Strange as Angels, a journey where he transcends the principle of the “cover”, with the help of the splendid ethereal voice of Chrystabell, also David Lynch’s muse. Produced, arranged and conceived by Marc Collin, this collection of covers of The Cure is skilfully woven, illuminated in the twilight so dear to the founder of Nouvelle Vague.
It is in the most mysterious corners of post-punk, new wave and goth-pop that The Cure managed to turn alternative music into a mainstream standard. Over four decades, Robert Smith’s band has created a kaleidoscope of genres, an aesthetic with a thousand faces, offering flamboyant lands to explore for other musicians. A poetic and dreamy stroll under the starry sky of a city of light… What better way to embody romance?
