Lovac 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. A new band with old roots, Lovac already released a full-length CD of Death in June covers on Douglas P.'s NERUS label under the name Down in June. With a distinctive "totenpop" vision they re-invented the songs to the delight of both Death In June fans and music journalists who discovered the treasure of Douglas P. songs anew. Lovac’s music evokes a night-of-the-world mood that deftly calls down the nostalgia of romanticism and overlays it with a war machine blowing a cold breeze of death into the dawn.
Analogue synthesizers are layered over electric guitars, supplemented with a variety of acoustic instruments, including military drums and the band’s ever-present Persian santoor, creating the unique music that defines Lovac. Combining this music with text fragments from Karl Marx, Antonin Artaud and Percy Bysshe Shelley, the album “Apes of a Cold God” invites the listener to take a deep look into the abysmal underside of civilization.
Lovac is based in Malmö. The bands four members live in Malmö, Berlin, Stockholm and Beirut. Lovac has previously released "Covers …" (Nerus/Soleilmoon, USA) as Down in June and "Hope is Dope EP" (Moonpalace Records, Spain) as Baby Blonde & the Downs.
