Soft and ethereal but anthemic and emotive, Dream Koala’s sounds are always works of art. For his newest work, the Parisian producer has reworked dreamy French cover band Nouvelle Vague’s cover of Joy Division’s seminal track “Love Will Tear Us Apart” into a new wave masterpiece. Giving Marc Collins and Olivier Libaux’s cover a complete reworking, Dream Koala – who is the son of Elosia, the singer of Nouvelle Vague’s cover – proves himself to be a musical wizard.
Turning the track from softly sweet indie tune to new wave masterpiece, songwriter/producer/musician/singer Dream Koala has created a floaty, ethereal-electro remix from Nouvelle Vague’s calming cover. On top of this remix, Nouvelle Vague have announced a new EP and album release, as well as a tour later this year, while Dream Koala is currently writing brand new material; Dream Koala and Nouvelle Vague are the ultimate heavenly mix.
