In terms of both commercial success and artistic credibility, Voltaj are on a par with Coldplay. But not musically: this is no music for bed-wetters. The recipe for Voltaj’s success is simple: take one of the best voices in Romania, one of the best-looking Romanian guys ever, mix with house beats and electric guitars. And then there’s the lyrics. Voltaj specialise in youthful rebellion. Example:

‘Patapetine’ (‘I’ve had it up to here with you’) from the album Povestea Oricui (2004)

I’ve had it up to here with you
Whatever I do isn’t good enough
I’ve had it up to here with you
When you don’t know what to do anymore, at least you could try to be quiet!

I’ve had it up to here with you
You think you know what’s good for me
I’ve had it up to here with you
You don’t want to understand and you’re starting to stress me out

And if I don’t feel like being with you… Leave me alone!
And if I want to stay out all night…
Let me do that!
And if I want to take care of myself
Let me do that! And say ‘thank you’
It couldn’t be any worse
