They play their own kind of soft alternative rock with female vocals. Chicherina started in 2000 with a great optimistic record "Сны" (Sny, or Dreams). Also in the year 2000, Chicherina featured in the soundtrack for the immensely popular Russian film "Брат-2" (Brat-2, or Brother 2), with the song "ТуЛуЛа" (TuLuLa).
