Nogu Svelo! is not very famous for thier slow songs, only perhaps Wolves made it to become a popular one. As you may have already predict, the pruspoe of this article is to give you more information about charming slow songs of Nogu Svelo! This is not just pop, heavy pop, punk pop, etc, this is something very unique, I can't name any artist that plays anything that cool and enjoyable in slow songs genre.
The Message (1993) Ok, ok, I'll speak about the awards, but later. The Message is first of all about music, about postpunk, maybe even about new age, about waiting for a person you are in to, about a person you dream about. Yes, this musical video has won an international musical video award, the Golden Deer in Romania, in 1994. Great job by Alexei Mitrofanov.
From Alma-Aty (2001) Fantastic phonetics of the Russian language with Kazakh geography names made it to sound softly, which is quite unusual. Though the story is too dramatic, a person who is waiting for his love realizes that her airplane crashed. The musical video continued the story, showing a person who quickly becomes white-haired of terror and goes to a horizontal bar in the local neighborhood, as this is obviously the best thing he can do, not to drink, not to cry, but to become stronger and get understanding of how to live since now. The russian public didn't understand this 2+3 equasion at that time, perhaps they were waiting for a video with airplane. Nevertheless, we've got excellent song. Oh, and especially this song is loved by those people, who were born in Alma-Aty.
Black hair, Redhead (2005). I totally like this song, it's perfect from the musical point of view, and the lyrics is also quite amazing, slightly post-30s-tiredness, light sexual frustration. And look at the girls who visited this gig in 2005.
Wolves (1998) quite let's start with the simpliest thing to find. Wolves is a love song, a song you can dance with your bride on your wedding, a song you can dance with a person you like. In 1999-2008 it was always in the concert 20 of Nogu Svelo!, later allowing more energetic songs to take her place. It was a good time though, making Nogu Svelo! gigs a little different,
7 Planets (2000) Slow, calm, great melody, one of the most underrated, underestimated, not enough popular songs. Great song to dance to.
Last Tango (1999) Estetical burst of great melody, great musical video with white costumes by russian theatre director Fedor Torstensen. Actually you can dance Tango under this melody, quite unusual for pop-punk band, isn't it?
Naked Clown (1998) This is a very sad song, very energetic, but very sad. Used to be played much in 1998-2002 on live concerts, made a comeback in 2016. Let's listen a performance from 2004.
Panties (1999) Actually it's a quite an old song, never released on early albums. It's unusual, very much unusual. It starts as 3:11 here.
PS: Requiem (1998) This song is considered by a lot of people as the best one of all Nogu Svelo! songs. It's the most serious songs, the most trasncendental and realistic ones, I don't know how to describe it. Someday I'll make a musical video for it based on Saving private Ryan video. Audio needs to be found yet. It can be bought at itunes here: (track 7)
