New Navy Appropriate Télépopmusik’s “Breathe”
A series of covers of French songs performed by Australians
In recent months, two names, Le Coq Sportif and the label Future Classic, have convinced a series of Australian musicians to do covers of more or less classic songs by French artists. For the fourth and final delivery in the series, New Navy have chosen “ Breathe” by Télépomusik. The Australians have chosen to free themselves from the minimalist electronic aura of the original to offer a number that is closer to the disco-pop of people like The Whitest Boy Alive, with some nice guitars in the foreground.
