As trailblazers of Slovenian electronic music and video art, they contributed to the blossoming of the European electronic body music scene. Borghesia's releases for the cult indie label Play It Again Sam are considered one of the heights of abrasive and dark electronic sounds of the late 80s. Their playful but eerie vision of EBM was put to rest just before the new millennium. A new Borghesia was formed and its membership expanded in 2009. The long awaited comeback album 'And Man Created God' marked a change of course, opting for a more orchestrated rock-oriented sound. In 2016 Borghesia released the live EP 'Better Live Than Dead' to capture their new sonic vision.
Borghesia’s new album 'Proti kapitulaciji' is a free-floating retrofuturist industrial art rock epic based on Srečko Kosovel’s modernist poetry that sits somewhere between an alternative soundtrack of Blade Runner, the uncanny ambience of Coil, melancholy of Berlin era David Bowie and immediacy of Nine Inch Nails.
