Le Coq Sportif & Future Classic have joined forces again for a huge finale in their series of Australian covers of classic French artists.
The 4th instalment is from Sydney band New Navy - recently picked by the Sydney Morning Herald as 2012’s ‘Next Big Thing’ - doing a very special cover of Télépopmusik’s “Breathe”.
Télépopmusik are a French trio that established a new sound in French electronic music in the early 2000’s with their peers & compatriots Air, Le Rythmes Digitales & Dimitri From Paris. “Breathe” featured the guest vocals of singer Angela McCluskey on the group’s debut album Genetic World & went on to break into the US + UK charts & be nominated for a Grammy Award in ‘Best Dance Recording’.
New Navy have stripped out all the electronic elements of the original & replaced with their signature clean bright guitars, island percussion + Ben McInerney’s rich vocals. New Navy took some seriously big strides in 2011 with their summer hits “Zimbabwe” & “Tapioca” carving up national youth broadcaster triple j + community stations all year & nabbing a spot on the prestigious triple j Hottest 100 list.
