LOS ANGELES (May 9th, 2016) – As the summer festival season kicks into high gear, the time is ripe for a return to the soulful basics of electronic dance music with songs grounded in the human element. Justin Paul presents The Model’s “Wrong Number” is just that kind of release. Justin Paul and Mark Richardson aka THE MODEL bring listeners back to a time when disco gave way to new wave and ultimately to house music with the Remodel Mix. Markie’s vocals are uniquely his style, but also have a familiar sound of a Michael Hutchence, or Bowie 1980s performance.
The Album Version of “Wrong Number” is an icy cool nod to the best of ‘80’s synth pop. This song is an example of uber cool indie electronic at its best, a trip backwards on an aural time machine. The chilly timbre of The Model’s voice lends the song a mod panache and it would be at home at a New York Fashion Week after party. Justin Paul’s production skills make the “Wrong Number” Remodel Mix feel urgent, upfront, undeniable.
The cold command of the synthesizers veers towards electro as visions of tastemakers in skinny ties and Debbie Harry lookalikes dance across the mind’s eye. Imagine scenes of porcelain-skinned, impeccably dressed, Hollywood A-listers and Andy Warhol dancing in silhouette. The Remodel Mix is characterized by the signature synth intro accompanied by an alert beat. The break on this edit builds with more fury than on the Album Version. The Remodel Mix stands out for being positively hypnotic and the listener is completely drawn in and under the influence.
In stores May 17th!

Philadelphia, PA – When you check out The Model’s track “I Won’t Be Hanging Out Anymore” (available for free download) you’ll wonder “just where in the hell did this awesome band come from and why haven’t I heard of them sooner?!” It’s not an overstatement or overconfidence to say this band’s debut CD “Physical”could be the electronic rock record of next couple of years. There are at least FIVE bonafide-hit singles on this CD, and of course, the band has the nerve to call itself The Model in the first place. It all makes sense and sounds fabulous at home, in the car or on a strobe lit runway.

So far “I Won’t Be Hanging Out Anymore” is the top pick from DJs, fans and friends as of this post.
“What Does It Look Like I’m Doing?” and “Wrong Number” features all the glitz and glitter great synthpop is all about. A sparkling synth line matches up with a pulsating beat and flowing lyrics that’s just magic for the ears. “I Won’t Be Hanging Out Anymore” brings some Philly philth into the mix for a dirtier electro sound. “Do You Believe In Angels” is reminiscent of Fischerspooner sans the robots and cheeky shtick, while “N/A” needs no explanation – it’s all about the power of Markie as a frontman. “Immigrant” sounds like it could have easily come from Trent Reznor’s Pretty Hate Machine or Broken. These are only half the tracks on Physcial – ’nuff said.
The Model was started by frontman/lyricist Markie and keyboardists Ziggy, Jason and Johnny as a semi-annual philosophic-pop-costume-party in Philadelphia, and today, it’s pretty much retained some of the pop and dance-ness and ridiculous-ness. The Model inspired by geometry and Russian literature, by Katherine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart, in old black and white photos. It’s as much man as it is machine.
The Model’s debut CD Physical is released November 18, 2009 on Playloop Records
