Decade- Diva Diva 7”

Originally posted by the great Dreams and Voices and freshly ripped from my own copy, this is one of my favorite mid-tempo French singles from Montpellier, a little romanticism in the B-side to get you through the week.  As he mentions, there’s a Little Nemo vibe in “Diva Diva,” certainly a welcome addition to the cold, melancholic French catalog.  “Conquistador” isn’t too shabby either, with a sinister synth undercurrent and a percussive-heavy melody.

This single was released in 1987 and is their only known recording.  Not much more to say about this one, other than enjoy!

  1. Dreams and Voices seems to have gone into ether for good now, sadly. Thanks for not giving up. The Decade single is pure joy, both sides.

  2. hi there,

    what a fantastic single, thank you for sharing this perls with us.

    since you also have a faible for coldwave, do you happen to have, by any chance, details on the french coldwave band “ars nova”? for years i have been looking for the demo cassette but without any luck so far. a dream would come true if you can tell anything or manage to find it and share it here.
