Sixth June (SRB)



Sixth June is a synthpop band from Berlin with origins in Belgrade, formed in 2007 by Laslo Antal and Lidija Andonov. Lidija Andonov (born 1982 in Belgrade) is an actress and singer who graduated in Academy of Arts in University of Novi Sad, Laslo Antal is a film maker, musician and visual artist.


In 2009 Sixth June performed at EXIT Festival in Novi Sad. 2010 they moved to Berlin and released their first album Everytime on german label Genetic Music and had appearance at BIMfest in Antwerp. The Sixth June Video “Oh no it’s burning” was part of the Berlin Music Week. On sixth June 2011 they released the EP Back For A Day.

2012 they were performing at Wave-Gotik-Treffen in Germany. 2013 they released the mini album Pleasure and had appearance at Nuit Fantastique in Brussels and Summer Darkness in Utrecht. After Berghain concert in 2014 the Berliner Zeitung describes their sound as "sweet, cool, dark elektropop" and close to Propaganda or Depeche Mode. Music videos and live projections are essential part of the performance of Sixth June, it gives the music the right balance and makes the whole experience fuller and richer. Having two people in the band who are closely connected to film, theatre and video art helps Sixth June to be recognizable not only by the music but the visual-image they create as well. After the release of their Pleasure EP ( came out in December 2013) , peek-a-boo magazine described their work as: The music from Laslo Antal and Lidija Andonov sounds indeed very 80’s, but at the same time contemporary as well. I know, they’re not the first who are doing such things…The only thing is that it often feels like Sixth June are just a bit better than the others, just like if their songs are classics themselves…. Indestructible monuments on their own. Yeah, I really use such big words. After hearing their brand new 5 tracks 12 EP Pleasure, I feel like to use these words again....


„Everytime“ ist nicht nur der Titel des Debütalbums des Minimal Synth-Duos SIXTH JUNE Lidija Andonov und Laslo Antal aus Belgrad, die seit einiger Zeit in Berlin leben und arbeiten, sondern einer der besten Minimal-Electro-Tracks des vergangenen Jahres und das Album ist jetzt auch erstmals als CD-Format erschienen.

Das Duo verliert sich gekonnt in klassischen Achtziger-Jahre-Synthie-Sounds und findet seine aktuelle Entsprechung in dem kongenialen Electro-Duo XENO & OAKLANDER aus New York. Wer kühle, aber extrem catchy – will sagen: tanzbare – Electro-Soundscapes mag, die klare Assoziationen wecken an Neon-Kellerclubs in Hinterhöfen wie im New-Wave-Zeitalter, der kann sich die Band auch sehr gut im Vorprogramm von NO MORE oder LIAISONS DANGEREUSES vorstellen.

Die Stimme von Sängerin Lidija strahlt diese distanzierte und gleichzeitig melancholisch-dunkle Raffinesse aus, wie man sie damals so sexy fand, als ein unkontrollierter Augenaufschlag auf der Bühne einen Flächenbrand bei den männlichen Zuschauern auslösen konnte.
