LOVAC, comprising Anders Carlsson, Erica Li and Martin Krall, is part of a larger movement of modern European pop music that draws inspiration from traditional folk music and brings it to new life in a fertile clash with the contemporary minimalistic industrial scene. Douglas P, whose songs Lovac covered (as Down in June) calls it “totenpop”. Analogue synthesizers are layered over electric guitars, supplemented with a variety of acoustic instruments, including military drums and the Persian santoor. In 2010 they released “Apes of a Cold God”, an album that invites the listener to take a deep look into the abysmal underside of civilization. Their next release will be the mini-album “The Fish & the Fist”, scheduled for early 2013. Lovac’s members Andreas Catjar, Anders Carlsson, Martin Krall and Erica Li live in Berlin, Stockholm and Malmö.
