Nicola Sirkis (born 22 June 1959 in Antony, Hauts-de-Seine) is the frontman and singer of the French rock band Indochine. He is the only remaining member of the original line-up of the band which he formed in 1981 with a friend, Dominique Nicolas, soon to be joined by his twin brother Stéphane and Dimitri Bodianski.
The band has been active for 30 years, and Nicola Sirkis saw critical and wide appeal and success in 2002 with the release of Paradize.
In 1992, Nicola Sirkis released a solo-album, Dans la Lune, covering a few of his favourite songs, in French or English.
Nicola Sirkis is also the author of the collection of short stories "Les Mauvaises Nouvelles", published in 1998. He has announced that a new book will come out soon. Sirkis is fluent in English, and is confident enough to perform English-language material, an example of which was an impromptu rendition of The Stone Roses' 'I Wanna Be Adored' at Indochine's O2 Shephards Bush Empire performance on 14 July 2014.
