Forged in December of 2015 and named after the Sergei Lukyanenko novel, NOCHNOY DOZOR (translated: Night Watch) embraces a variety of genres, with ambient soundscapes and pop flourishes clashing against heavy breaks and moments of harsh rock outbursts, all defined by the sophisticated interplay of synths and guitars. Dominating it all however are the dueling vocals of Lina and Revekka who guide listeners through their atmospheric and often atypical musical explorations. NOCHNOY DOZOR understands the “less is more” concept manifesting an immersive sonic experience that delves deep into the soul of all those willing to listen.
