More About NONONO:
"Pumpin Blood" scored a massive international TV commercial campaign for Samsung's Galaxy IV, as well as a Sparkling Ice campaign that's now running. The song is shooting up the radio charts thanks to early support from influential stations like KROQ/LA, KYSR/LA, WKQX/Chicago, LIVE105/SF, WHFS/Baltimore, KROX/Austin, Sirius/Alt Nation and Music Choice "Pumpin Blood" represents just one angle of the NONONO sound however. Other songs such as "Down Under," and "Like The Wind" fluctuate across styles, genres and moods. "Pumpin Blood" is the bait that will allow their other angles to be discovered on their upcoming debut album.
As Stina affirms: "There's something that ties the sound of the songs together but they're all a little bit of different. We never wanted to decide upon a genre or what the NONONO sound was. We just always go with what we felt like and what inspired us that day - you go from being happy to being sad to being shallow to being deep, so whatever mood we've been in that's what song will emerge."
Part of the identity of the band is sourced from the freedom that emerged when they all turned down musical projects that they weren't comfortable with. But, as Stina explains, that can be applied across other areas of life too: "Most of the time people want to say yes, like, 'Yes, I want the job' or 'Yes, I want to be your girlfriend.' But it's a lot harder to say no. It's really important to live your life for yourself, and what things you want to do and what relationships you want to keep."
NONONO is a triumph of the positive aspect of negative thinking.
