New EP, “Open Beta” Available Now
LISTEN TO NEW SINGLE “Love’s No Distance”
NiVO DEUX (pronounced nee-voh doo) is a French-American duo based in Los Angeles. The band’s 80’s New Wave and Electro-Pop influences are apparent, but the band also hints at the influence of the Smooth Jazz, Funk, Rock FM, Electropop, and Nu-Disco styles in their music. The group’s core members comprise of Platinum French R&B/Pop Producer and Chart-Topping Guitarist U-Nam and up and coming Saxophonist and Vocalist Shannon Kennedy.
NiVO DEUX’s music continues in the tradition of a number of extraordinary bands such as Blondie, New Order, Duran Duran, Tears for Fears, Level 42, Depeche Mode, Chic, Foreigner and even David Sanborn and George Howard. Their origins and style may seem eclectic but the clever ways in which they bring together these diverse influences is what makes their music interesting and even addictive.
The band’s name, NiVO DEUX is derived from the French translation of “Level 2” (the correct French spelling is Niveau Deux). The name pays homage to one of the duo’s favorite bands, Level 42. NiVO DEUX is the perfect marriage of 80’s Pop, Smooth Jazz and Electro-Funk, organized by a husband and wife duo.
Their first full album, 2 the Next Level, will be released later this year on Skytown Records.
The new EP, “Open Beta” and the band’s single “Love’s No Distance” are available now for airplay. Their music is also available for download on iTunes and most online distributors including Amazon, Spotify and CDBaby. You can learn more about the band and their new releases at www.nivodeux.com.
