Negative is a Serbian rock band from Belgrade.

History[edit]

Negative was formed in 1999 by a former Tap 011 vocalist Ivana Pavlović, guitarists Nikola Radaković and Vladimir "Grle" Đurđević, bass guitarist Milen Zlatanović and drummer Miloš Bilanović. They released their debut self-titled album Negative in 1999. The album was mostly power pop-oriented, and featured a cover of Viktorija's song "Barakuda" ("Barracuda"). In 2001, they released the live box set entitled 19 05 00, recorded on their first solo concert in Belgrade's SKC on May 19, 2000. The box set featured a live CD featuring, beside the songs recorded on their first album, covers of the world hits popular at the time, and a VHS featuring a recording of the concert. During the same year, their song "Kraj" ("The End") appeared on the album Apsolutnih 100 (Absolute 100), featuring the music from the film of the same name.

In 2002, the band released their second album Ni ovde ni tamo (Neither Here, Nor There), featuring similar power pop sound as their debut album. In 2004, they released the album Tango, recorded without Đurđević and featuring Ivana Pavlović on vocals and keyboards, and took part in Beovizija 2004 with the song "Zbunjena" ("Confused") placing 1st out of 28 with a score of 79 points. This qualified them for the Evropesma 2004 contest where they eventually finished in 4th place with a score of 44 points. In 2005, they recorded the theme "Pogled na nebo" ("A View of the Sky") for Nikola Vukčević film A View from Eiffel Tower. They returned to Beovizija in 2007 with the song "Prava stvar" ("The Right Stuff") finishing in 3rd place as the jury's favorite while only coming 8th in the public vote. They also participated at Beovizija 2008, but failed to qualify for the final.

The band has released their fourth studio album named Spusti me na zemlju (Put Me on the Ground) in spring of 2009.

In February 2011, Ivana Peters announced that the band will start working on their fifth studio album during the spring of 2011.[1] The band introduced their new bass guitarist, Vladimir Čukić, at a club performance on November 23, 2013.
