Hailing from Gothenburg, Sweden, Facit is the project of Joakim Karlsson. For almost a decade, he has been producing tearful synthesizer music under various aliases, often teaming up with compatriot Mai Nestor on vocals.
Smartly drawing a line between Swedish chanson and minimal synth, ‘Måndag Mon Amour’ is Facit’s second EP after having stopped at Veronica Vasicka’s Cititrax in late 2013 with 'Mat Åt Duvorna' (Food For Pigeons).
Picture two passengers with paralyzing hemophobia, riding a sad carriage and smiling with tranquil melancholy, endlessly playing early 80s analog gear through some spring reverb.
It doesn’t take long to remember « notre amour était dans un igloo » and never forgetting it.
