Marina Malakhova: The first years, when we just started, we've had a good laugh when we read everywhere that we are the lovers of some oligarchs, that we play by the phonogram people for some reason couldn't believe that girls can play hard rock live, although personally for me it's incomprehensible what's supernatural in this?
Marina Mokretsova: It's great to play in female band there is more mutual understanding in my opinion. In addition the specificity of female band as such attracts more audience, because this occurrence is not prevalent in our musical segment.

Svetlana Molchanova: I don't complain about attention of the fans, everything suits me in this plan.

Marina Malakhova: Maybe because we are not so saint and nice?
Marina Mokretsova: We are not so nice.
Svetlana Molchanova: So happened that I started my career exactly with rock music, but, as the fate willed, I had to work in pop-music, so I have what to compare.

9. Do you get more attention from the women or men?

Marina Malakhova: Unambiguously from men.
Marina Mokretsova: From men, but only because more men among the fans of hard music.
Svetlana Molchanova: Because our band is female nevertheless, then, in my opinion, from men.
