“It's somewhat of a departure from the ‘cool.’ I think we all felt [our earlier work] was a bit too cool, although it wasn't too cool for the time. This third album is just a different time in our lives. We felt like it was time to open up and maybe be more mature and show vulnerability.” - Sabina Sciubba
Although pegged for southern success, The Brazilian Girls are making a splash throughout America and Europe. Made up of vocalist Sabina Sciubba, keyboardist Didi Gutman, bassist Jesse Murphy, and drummer Aaron Johnston, the Girls are breaking new ground with their combination of reggae, electronica, jazz and bossa nova. Adding to their eclectic sound, lead singer Sciubba had previously recorded two jazz albums on an English audiophile label Naim. Sciubba was born in Rome but grew up in Nice, France, and Munich, Germany before settling in Brooklyn, NY. She can also sing in more than 5 languages and incorporates her multilingual status into her song lyrics. The band got its start through a club on the lower east side of Manhattan called Nublu. The band began to gather a fan base and the critical acclaim followed. The Verve company became interested in the Brazilian Girls around 2003 when Murphy and Johnston made appearance on John Zorn’s 2003 album Voices in the Wilderness. The Brazilian Girls have released three albums with Verve Forecast including their self-titled debut Brazilian Girls and Talk to La Bomb.
