Just to put it out there, Brazilian Girls is not a literal name. There is in fact just the singular girl – lead vocalist Sabina Sciubba – who isn’t Brazilian either. Though interestingly when I saw this new album title alongside the band name, what instantly came to mind was those bubbly new-ravers CSS and their song ‘Let’s Make Love And Listen To Death From Above’. CSS in fact had plural girls and were Brazilian. Coincidence?? Who cares. Right.

Veterans now of course, the long time coming fourth full-length from the New York City quartet continues to drive Brazilian Girls down a path of alternative electronica mashed with cheeky understated eccentricity. The premise of the album being about “sleeping and sleeping together”, as Sabina Sciubba puts it. We all need more love, right?

Alternative is certainly the order of the day on Let’s Make Love. Or perhaps eclectic is better suited. ‘Balla Balla’ is the epitome of Brazilian Girl’s alternative electro stance; a bouncing pop ditty with true International flavour, featuring a samba rhythm worthy of the Brazilian name, interspersed with Sabina Sciubba deftly falling into Italian-spoken verses.

And yet, lead track and album opener ‘Pirates’ is in real contrast; a zingy synth-line runs behind Sabina giving her best Lene Loviche impersonation. A superb new-wave monster of a track and a triumphant return from a decade on the sidelines.
