Rarely do you find such melancholic, atmospheric sounds in Switzerland as Dumanic plays them on his debut-EP: "Love is Dead" is a flirtation with modern wave-electropop, wonderful indie guitars and the dark aesthetics of postpunk.
Zurich-based Dumanic appeared on the scene in spring, when he released his first two singles. Not only did the ex-singer of the highly acclaimed indie band Joules gain a lot of airplay with those tracks, but also did gaining him a growing fanbase.
"Daydream", the lead-track of the new Dumanic-EP, invites us into the wide fields of fantasy. Therefore he's using dreampop-elements, making his sound accessible. And yes, the new sound is so catchy that you will remember this daydream for a long time.
Despite containing elements of the 1980s, Dumanic's sound is modern, du to the collaboration with Slade Templeton. The American, best known for his work with Crimer, is responsible for the zeitgeist in Dumanic's music.
