Back in the 1980's, we were just young kids, messing around with synthesizers. We loved synth pop, we loved music and we loved to make our own music. When we put out our first demo cassette, "In Fact", we had worked for about a year making and recording songs. The demo won "demo of the month" in the esteemed Swedish musician's magazine "MusikerMagasinet" and the Art Fact story had begun.

We worked through the early 1990s with refining our sound, and during that time managed to create a number of songs which today still stand as naïve, but quite wonderful synth pop classics. On our second cassette, "Nowadays", we had found our stride, and most of the songs on this last album, "Closure" are actually from Nowadays, including "Man in armour" and "Nowadays".

In 2012 we were honored to be one of the first acts to be released on the new label Dödsdans Rekords. Dödsdans compiled a "best of" from our cassettes, and put them on a double-vinyl album. This was our first ever "real" release, since all the cassettes we put out back in the day were sold out a long time ago. The vinyl was very well received, and we also performed live for the first time in twenty years in 2013.

Before performing live, we had to re-record the tracks we wanted to play, since the originals were long lost on diskettes and software we could no longer use. The new versions of our classic songs turned out good. So good, in fact, that we decided that we wanted to issue them on one final Art Fact release, called "Closure".

So, here we are. This vinyl album will be extremely limited, only 250 copies in total. It will be on luscious minimalist white 12" vinyl. It will be numbered in order received. It will sound great. The track listing is as follows:

  • The Initial Merge 
  • Nowadays 
  • I'm Here 
  • As You Say 
  • Man in Armour 
  • Building 
  • Rain in the South 

Note that these are brand NEW recordings, re-interpreted by Art Fact for 2015. However, with some of the higher levels, you will also get a new cassette with an original Art Fact demo of your choice, and the two very highest levels also include the double vinyl from 2012 with original tracks.

We hope that you will like this release as much as we do. We are proud of what Art Fact became, and with this final release, we feel like we've come full circle. Thank you for listening!
