Brazilian Girls To Release New Album
Published June 28, 2006

Building upon tremendous critical acclaim and consistently sold-out performances, Brazilian Girls return with the eagerly anticipated Talk To La Bomb. Verve Forecast releases the new album September 12.

Late last fall, the band entered Jimi Hendrix’s famed Electric Lady Studios in New York City with producer Mark Plati (David Bowie, The Cure, Dee Lite). Ric Ocasek of The Cars produced the song “Last Call.” The band was inspired by their surroundings and quickly began composing material. With the resulting 12 new tracks, they push their innovative fusion of electro, dub, pop, punk and dance music to more elaborate and edgy arrangements.

Building and expanding upon their signature polyglot sound, front-woman Sabina Sciubba alternates between five different languages on the album—English, German, French, Italian, and Spanish—often delivering this melting pot of languages in one sentence. In keeping with the band’s combination of glamour and humor, Sciubba declares, “The future of this planet as we know it, the human and animal kingdom, and the plants, depends solely on this record. You’re welcome."

Talk To La Bomb is co-produced by the band and Plati and Ocasek. It was mixed by Tchad Blake and Rich Costey. Brazilian Girls are joined on the album by Clark Gayton (trombone, baritone, saxophone), Peck Almond (woodwinds), Ric Ocasek (guitar), Jorge Continentino (flutes, saxophone), James Zollar (flugelhorn, trumpet) and Mauro Refosco(percussion).

Their eponymous debut earned tremendous critical acclaim. The New York Times described the band as “catchy, musically ambitious and proudly theatrical…irresistible,” Entertainment Weekly praised the album as “…unceasingly irresistible,” while the Associated Press called it one of the “top 10 albums of 2005.” Rolling Stone wrote of the band “…so finessed that they leave their scent on every musical landscape they visit…” and The Miami Herald said “…the best debut in a decade, since Missy Elliott, PJ Harvey, Massive Attack and Sleater-Kinney first blew people’s minds.

Brazilian Girls are Sabina Sciubba (vocals), Didi Gutman (keyboards), Jesse Murphy (bass) and Aaron Johnston (drums). Based in New York City, yet comprised of four globetrotting members (none of whom are Brazilian and only one of whom is female). The band boasts an equally strong visual image, led by front-woman Sciubba’s innovative sense of style. Please visit verveforecast.com and braziliangirls.info.
