Demo hit the Russian music arena in 1999. After a lengthy casting the band’s lead singer became Sasha Zvereva, who not only performed songs written by Demo’s producers, but also wrote her own compositions. In 2011 Sasha chose to go solo and left Demo, where her place was taken over by a young singer, Darya Pobedonostseva. The fans’ interest plummeted as a result, and soon the management decided to go all out by launching a new version of one of Demo’s very first songs, Solnyshko, which had been a huge success previously. The release of Solnyshko-2012 split the audience’s opinions: some found the experiment unsuccessful and stopped following Demo’s work, whereas others supported the new bandmates and remained Demo fans.
