Softcore Express, this time featuring the amazing Polette on vocals.
Maybe some people are too young to remember, but during the late 80’s ABBA
was a very uncool band, a cheesy thing from the 70’s. No one was doing
ABBA covers, except for some synthpop/ electropop bands like Information Society, Men Without Hats and, later, Erasure.
Strangely, for synthpop fans too young to remember the originals, these
were the first glimpses of ABBA’s master songwriting. Much later, the
whole A*Teens/ Mamma Mia craze started and ABBA became fashionable again for the masses. This
is not only an ABBA tribute, it’s a tribute to all these pioneer
synthpop and electropop artists that covered ABBA when no one was doing
As usual, Softcore Express’ sound combines a classic and a modern electropop sounds and, this time, it is the wonderful singer Polette AKA Paula Varela (an amazing vocalist and sessionist who sung countless jingles and shared stages with Shakira and Deep Purple among many others) the one who sings, making this electro tribute a perfect ABBA listening experience.
