It’s been nearly eight years since Brazilian Girls released a record, but the distressing dearth of downtempo, head bobbing, samba-flavored electronic pop will finally come to end this summer with their yet to be titled new album. If you’re new to their music, they sound something like a combination of Air and Nouvelle Vague, with lyrics sung by Astrud Gilberto and Marlene Dietrich’s love child.
Despite their disappointing break from recording, the members of the Brazilian Girls have nothing but prolific in other endeavors. In the in between time they’ve released several solo records, had a combined eight children, and starred in a Louis C.K. produced television show about a failed, classically trained clown, who becomes a rodeo clown in Bakersfield, CA . Nonetheless, it’s hard to say what direction their music will take with their upcoming album, especially considering the abundance of new life material they have to work with, but there are some things you can always count on with the New York based Brazilian girls. There’s only one girl, none of them are Brazilian, and they create seductively aberrant music.
Brazilian Girls came into Studio 1A over the weekend, and played some stripped down versions of some of their new material, check it out at the bottom of the page.
