I Won’t Follow You

Remember, we were strangers yesterday
Today we could change our ways

The melancholic vibes, the excellent vocals, the unbeatable danceable quality and the great video by the band themselves, make this release a must-experience for all “creatures of the night”. Especially fans of Covenant should immediately invest their time on this treasure!

The composition of "I Won't Follow You" is masterful, with great dynamics and variation that never sound too complex. It's a straight forward classic dark wave song!

ELECTROZOMBIESInternational Synthpop Magazine (Germany)

Die Basis des Tracks ist ein eine etwas düster anmutende Synthline, unterstützt von einer simplen funky Bassline. Die Vocals sind szenetypisch melancholisch und dunkel gehalten. Erzeugt wird so ein Gefühl von Monotonie, welches jedoch durch die Beats, den latenten 80’s- Wave- Touch und die Hook aufgebrochen wird. Kurz gesagt ist das Ergebnis ein einladendes Klangwerk, welches Appetit auf weiteres Material macht!

What have I become
My sweetest friend?




Extinguished stars, foreign planets, and black holes. Places beyond our imagination that arouse longings and invite us to dream. These are the themes that inspire Swiss duo CØLDSTAR.

CØLDSTAR consists of Martin Baumann and Michael Freund, who have another fascination besides their passion for dark and electronic music: space! Inspired by the dark and mysterious side of the universe, the two-piece have created their own aesthetic of melancholic melodies and soundscapes. CØLDSTAR use analog synthesizers and vocoders from bygone eras.

After releases on two compilations (via darkTunes Music Group and Young & Cold Records) as well as a space-version of the classic «Hurt», which we also know from Johnny Cash, their first digital EP «Coming Home» will be released on April 27, 2023. The single «I Won’t Follow You» was released as a teaser on March 3, 2023 (Zoey Records / The Orchard Music).
