Raised in Montreal but based out of Berlin, electro-pop artist Dan Bodan is a recent signee to James Murphy’s label DFA. Today marks the arrival of the second preview of his DFA debut, Soft, which drops in full on October 28. The new taste of Soft is Jaws Of Life, a slinky electronic pseudo-R&B ballad. Bodan’s vocals are tender and controlled, and as the song’s emotional refrain of “I don’t trust you anymore” builds over swelling synth pads and swirling saxes, you will inevitably realize that you are witnessing the first coming of one of the genre’s next big players.
