Artist Info: Brazilian Girls return in 2018 with Let’s Make Love, their fourth album and first since 2008’s Grammy-nominated New York City. Due April 13 via Six Degrees Records, the album release will be followed by a short U.S. tour in May (see dates below). First single “Pirates” is a modern-age new wave love song that frontwoman Sabina Sciubba describes as, “a song about sleeping and sleeping together. How we should all sleep more and sleep more together. It would change everything. Actually that's what the whole record is about. It may even be the true meaning of life."

Formed in 2003, the group was born after the four members crossed paths at East Village club Nublu where they began playing 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 Girlsreleased their self-titled debut in 2005 and sophomore album Talk to La Bomb in 2006. 

In reflecting on Let’s Make Love, Brazilian Girls attribute their sustained momentum to an egalitarian mentality. “I think the fact that we’ve been able to last so long and keep moving forward has to do with this all starting in a very collaborative way,” says bassist Jesse Murphy. And thanks to that sense of openness, the band’s stayed true to an instinct-led process that makes their music all the more exhilarating for both artist and audience.
