Bend Autopark osnovali su 2000. godine u Beogradu Milan Jovanović (Headstream), Nenad Jevtić (Ljubavnici) i Ognjenka Lakićević (Tornado ptice).

Muzika Autoparka mogla bi da se opiše kao spoj gitarske buke i pop melodije, otrovan uticajima američkih i engleskih bendova sa kraja osamdesetih i početka devedesetih godina prošlog veka. Ali, sami članovi grupe smatraju da muzika najviše zavisi od njihovog unutrašnjeg stanja, te da su granice u muzici i bilo kakve žanrovske definicije jako dosadne.

Prvi album, “10+1“ objavljen je 2005. godine, i to samo na internetu. U decembru 2006. godine za Multimedia Records izlazi njihov sledeći album, “Osećanja za poneti“.

Rad na novom, trećem po redu, albumu „Sve dalje“ odraz je odrastanja, ali i shvatanja značaja i lepote boravka u studiju, čemu je veoma pomogao ko-producent Saša Janković. Album “Sve dalje”’ izašao je početkom decembra 2009. godine kao samizdat.

Četvrti, poslednji album “Autopakao” izašao je u februaru 2012. godine u izdanju “Odličnog hrčka” i Ustanove kulture “Parobrod”. Juna iste godine album je objavljen online, na EXIT etiketi, gde se može besplatno preuzeti.

Posle promene nekoliko članova, Autopark se ustalio u postavi: Ognjenka Lakićević (vokal), Nikola Berček (gitara), Dušan Lopušina (gitara), Aleksandar Šišić (bas), Bojan Dmitrašinović (bubnjevi) i Aleksandar Sivački (klavijature).

AUTOPARK is a band from Belgrade, Serbia, whose members are in love with guitar noise and beauty of pop melody. The band consists of six people living double lives – regular jobs during the day and playing in the night. Their music is often described as ‘noise-pop’ or ‘dream-pop’, but they do not like to be classified as it limits freedom. The name of the band, besides its obvious meaning (that has to do something with the fact that AUTOPARK members love cars), carries a possible denotation: ‘AUTO’ can also be considered as a prefix for word ‘-park’. Some explanation

AUTOPARK was formed in summer of the year 2000. in Belgrade by long-time friends Milan (guitar, bass), Nenad (keyboards) and Olja (vocals, lyrics). Turbulent years ensued, as members were changing constantly. Finally, Milan, author of most of the music, went to live abroad, and survival of AUTOPARK was under a question mark. Before Milan left, AUTOPARK recorded 10 songs in his basement, which he produced afterwards. Those 10 songs closed the first chapter of AUTOPARK’s life and the band placed the material (sometimes referred to as ”Our So-Called Record” or “10+1”) available on the Internet.

The second chapter started in 2004, when Nikola, a new guitar player, joined AUTOPARK to become the main person in the band and author of most of the music. In the beginning of 2005, the band is fully formed with permanent staff members.

The songs made since then were recorded in 2006 and can be found on the new AUTOPARK album “Osecanja za poneti” (“Feelings To Go”) that was released on 13 December 2006. This time, AUTOPARK signed for a record label – Multimedia records.

Olja declares for animal rights, development of health care, chocolate state, humanity, food, ban on dubbing movies, 4 working days in a week, ban on using clocks, good taste, free Serbia (of visa policy), unconditional friendships and endless love – shortly, for the world that does not exist. Besides working on the new songs, AUTOPARK fully supports her beliefs.

Third album “Sve dalje was released in December 2009, by the band.

The latest album “Autopakao” was released in February 2012 on “Odličan hrčak” and UK “Parobrod” labels. It was also published online on EXIT label, where you can download and stream it for free: http://www.exitmusic.rs/sr/label/autopark?a=autopakao

Autopark are: Ognjenka Lakićević (vocals, lyrics), Nikola Berček (guitar), Dušan Lopušina (guitar), Aleksandar Šišić (bass), Bojan Dmitrašinović (drums) i Aleksandar Sivački (synth).
