Le Coq Sportif and Future Classic have joined forces again for a huge finale in their series of Australian covers of classic French artists.
The fourth 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 and compatriots Air, Le Rythmes Digitales and Dimitri From Paris. 'Breathe' featured the guest vocals of singer Angela McCluskey on the group's debut album 'Genetic World' and went on to break into the US and UK charts and be nominated for a Grammy Award in 'Best Dance Recording'.
New Navy have stripped out all the electronic elements of the original and replaced with their signature clean bright guitars, island percussion and Ben McInerney's rich vocals. New Navy took some seriously big strides in 2011 with their summer hits 'Zimbabwe' and 'Tapioca' carving up national youth broadcaster triple j and community stations all year and nabbing a spot on the prestigious triple j Hottest 100 list.
