Band history[edit]

The band was formed in 2005[1] in Belgrade, Serbia, consisting of Marija Mandic (vocals and guitar), Anja Prošić (drums), Nikolina "Nina" Doroškov (bass guitar) and Kristina Krspogačin (vocals and guitar), under the guidance of their song author and manager Ognjen Cvekić.

They have been contestants in many festivals, including Zrenjanin (2005), Herceg Novi (2006 and 2008), Slavianski Bazaar and Beovizija (2007 and 2008). In Beovizija 2007 their song "Sama" finished in 2nd place.[4] They improved their ranking the following year when their single "Kvar" placed three in Beovizija 2008.[5] In 2008 they won the New Star award at Sunčane Skale festival in Herceg Novi. Previously, they came 2nd in 2006.[6]
