BRAZILIAN GIRLS RELEASES NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR “LET’S MAKE LOVE”

Brazilian Girls shared the first video from new album Let’s Make Love today. Filmed in Buenos Aires, Argentina—home city of keyboardist Didi Gutman—while the band was on tour in late-2017, the video for the album’s first single “Pirates” was directed by visual artist Juan Gonzs (https://vimeo.com/juangonzs). Gutman notes, “Since we all live in different cities now, we took the opportunity to shoot the video while playing a couple of shows in Argentina. We didn’t have a lot of time, so we asked Juan Gonzs to follow us around to soundchecks, shows, hotels and going from place to place. He has a great eye and did a great job at capturing us intimately—having fun playing and hanging out together.” See the video now via Brooklyn Vegan and here: https://youtu.be/bRJQXfwicPk.

Let’s Make Love is out April 13 via Six Degrees Records. It is the band’s fourth album and first since 2008’s Grammy-nominated New York City. The album release will be followed by a short U.S. tour in May, including a just-announced show at San Francisco’s August Hall (see dates below & tix here).

Produced by longtime collaborator Frederik Rubens, the album came to life over the course of several years. The four band members— Sabina Sciubba (lead vocals, electronics), Didi Gutman (keyboards, vocals), Aaron Johnston(drums, percussion, vocals) and Jesse Murphy (bass, vocals)—are now scattered throughout the U.S. and Europe and they assembled when possible to write and record, piggybacking those sessions onto gigs in Istanbul and Madrid, Paris and New York. Despite the distance, the group consistently found their chemistry as kinetic as when they first started out.

Let’s Make Love was closely informed by the more commanding vocal delivery that Sciubba brought to the album. The band also brings a woozy romanticism to many tracks including the frenetic yet ethereal title track and modern-age, new wave love song, “Pirates.” On songs like the feel-good dance number about social decay, “Wild Wild Web,” and “Impromptu”—an exquisitely scornful track that Sciubba calls “an anti-conformist anthem,” Let’s Make Love slips into a defiant mood suited to the album’s punk-inspired sensibilities.

Formed in 2003, the group was born after the four members crossed paths at East Village club Nublu where they began playing the weekly, embracing a free-form ethos that helped shape their kaleidoscopic sound. Fast earning attention for their euphoric live show—and winning fans like Zach Galifianakis, who later cast Sciubba as a regular on his FX show Baskets—Brazilian Girls released their self-titled debut in 2005 and sophomore album Talk to La Bomb in 2006.
