Nookie is a band from Russia and with the Cyrillic langue’s we got Нуки, and the band are now ready with their third offering. Refuses To Make Exceptions (Исключения) containing 13 powerful songs where the singer Nookie is backed by her talented group of musicians. Nookie keeps a strict schedule of releasing a new album every second years.
The title of the disc is not accidental, it reflects the main idea. According to Nookie, her new disc is addressed to each specific person as an exception. The center of attention is a person who is opposed to the crowd. In the world there are no two identical people, it’s important to be yourself and to feel the importance of your own life – the main idea that she wants to convey. The sound covers uncompromising nu-metal and alternative metal complemented with strong melodies and topped with the unmistakable voice of Nookie herself.
Nookie is the solo project of Russian group Slot’s singer Daria Stavrovich. For most people, Nookie’s name is associated exclusively with the extravagant vocalist of the band Slot, who have made their name and still ignite the Russian alternative scene. But it is difficult to place a talented person in any particular style or frame, and even more so to keep them there.
