Softengine — that’s Topi, Ossi, Henri and Tuomo — achieved Finland’s second best Eurovision result of the 21st century with “Something Better“. Since then they’ve released critically acclaimed hit after critically acclaimed hit. The magic continues on December 4 with the release of their new EP. They’ve already teased the lead single “All About You & I“. Now, before giving us the full eargasm, they’ve released their second single “Big Fat Bass Drums”. It shows a more modern and urban sound, mixing stadium rock with dance beats and a catchy chorus.
“The song was born when Topi was driving home after a really long and exhausting day and was hoping that he would hear just one song from the car radio which would fit the moment’s mood,” the band writes on their Facebook page. “This single is compiled from a variety of sounds which reflects how the music sounded just at that moment.”

Softengine will release their second album in two EPs. The new sound may reflect other changes in their lives. All four of the guys have moved into an apartment in Helsinki, where they’ve worked on new music in their home studio.
