We love introducing new groups. For us, it’s like giving you a present wrapped in beautiful wrapping paper, with an incredible surprise inside. And SOFT REGIME is one of the best presents we could give you right now. They are a European band, consisting of a French woman (the singer Astrid Rostaing), a German (the producer and songwriter Christian Flamm), and an Englishman (Tim Benton, songwriter, lyricist, and once-frontman of BAXENDALE), their first single is named after an Italian artist, which they are releasing on a Spanish label. These curious circumstances truly represent the paradigm of a band without borders, but with a clear focus on togetherness and polished dance floors. The line that summarizes the group’s concept says it all: “To be strict on softness, but soft on strictness, to make hot emotional pop in a glacial synthetic frame”.

“Michelangelo” is the lead song on their first single - a true ode to europop, with vocoders, luminous melodies, and super-danceable choruses. The total dancefloor-filler will definitely be played on european walkmen for a long time. “Pedestrian Sunset” comes in a curious format - the song is divided between the A and B-sides on the physical single, maintaining high levels of energy. To wrap things up, the statement of intent that is their cover of “The Queen Of Seville” by THE CLIENTELE (a British group with a cult following, one of whose first singles was released by Elefant Records in 2000). It’s wonderful to see how the delicious and intimate nocturnality of the original is maintained in this new version, but with the night-lights turned into spotlights and disco balls. High-voltage synth-pop.

These three songs are an explosive cocktail of the best European electronic pop in the last four decades: NEW ORDER, LA CASA AZUL, CLIO, STRAWBERRY SWITCHBLADE, CLUB 8, MIKADO, DMX KREW, ELLI & JACNO, ANDREAS DORAU, DUBSTAR, and NEW MUSIK... These grooves will definitely enjoy some of the best needles on the planet. SOFT REGIME, or how to light up the night.

Track Name: Michelangelo
The time is right
Capture the light
Let's put your talents to the test

Work my spine
Draw the line
I’m stretching like a lioness

And ooh it's magic I feel
As you're bringing me to life again
Oh it’s monumental
I never ever wanna change

Yeah
Sculpture me for eternity
Tonight I'm yours for the keeping
In a thousand years I will still be here
I don't want to lose this feeling

Don’t lose it, don’t lose it
Let’s do it

Be my Michelangelo
Never let this feeling go
Be my Michelangelo
Never let this feeling go
Be my Michelangelo
Never let this feeling go
Be my Michelangelo
Oh oh oh

Yeah
Sculpture me for eternity
Tonight I'm yours for the keeping
In two thousand years I will still be here
I don't want to lose this feeling
Oh yeah

And maybe when the winter falls around me
They’ll understand when the snow won’t land
That you gave a renaissance with your hands
Your hands
Yeah

Sculpture me for eternity
Tonight I'm yours for the keeping
In three thousand years I will still be here
I don't want to lose this feeling

Yeah
Sculpture me for eternity
Tonight I'm yours for the keeping
In four thousand years I will still be here
I don't want to lose this feeling
I don't want to lose this feeling
I don't want to lose this feeling
I don't want to lose this feeling
I don't want to lose this feeling

Track Name: The Queen Of Seville
4.45 and no one’s alive
By the lights on 10th street
But that’s alright
I'm wasted anyway

The Queen of Seville
She sends me roses
It's gonna be a lonely lonely day

So set em up Joe
At least I know
There’s no way forward
'Cos every way I look
This ends the same

The Queen of Seville
She sends me roses
It’s gonna be a lonely lonely day

Lord, I gotta go
'Cos there is no place in this world for me no more
But the tide, it whispers back again
It's gonna be a lonely lonely day

The Queen of Seville
She sends me roses
