New York hipsters Brazilian Girls play music without borders. It drifts through styles — electro-dance, bossa nova, reggae, jazz, etc. — and languages (alluringly mysterious vocalist Sabina Sciubba sings in German, French, Italian, Spanish and English) with breathy ease and pulsating force. Coalescing around the progressive Nublu club in Manhattan in 2003, the multinational band — members are from Rome, Buenos Aires, California and Kansas — made their name amongst downtown bohos by combining cosmopolitan musical influences with Sciubba’s flirtatious stage persona and, um, interesting fashion sense. Their self-titled debut caught fire, and their new record, Talk to La Bomb, is fanning the flames, landing them an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman and a headlining theater tour which takes them to the Wiltern in Los Angeles on Halloween night.
