A Delicate Nuans

As I've mentioned once or twice before, writers like Ian Rankin, Peter Robinson and John Connolly have opportunities to indulge their musical taste through recondite musical references in their books.  I have little chance to do this because Mongolian taste in popular music tends to be - well, idiosyncratic.  Here's another example, a review from the UB Post of the band Nuans.  I've not heard Nuans, but, on the strength of this review, I want to.

'Have you ever anticipated what a bunch of sappy pop hits would sound like if given the opera treatment in Mongolia by a trio of gentlemen?' asks the reviewer.  Well, no, since you ask.  But it's difficult to resist the idea of a band whose repertoire ranges from Ave Maria to Abba, or from the opera Carmen to Eric Carmen.
