Brazilian Girls

Brazilian Girls

Free association on a supercharged pair of words -- "Brazilian" and "girls" -- yields a wealth of evocative images: the lipstick grins and sequined breasts of Carnival, the delicately curved torsos of baby-oiled sun-baskers, and thongs (or better yet: what they fail to conceal). The super-hot, super-hyped New York dance quartet of this selfsame name is hip to the lure of its marquee-ready moniker, hence the eponymously titled debut CD. Led by sultry Roman polyglot Sabina Sciubba -- who seduces with whispers and sensuous melodies in Italian, French, Spanish, German, and English (ironically, notPortuguese) -- Brazilian Girls are all about the power of suggestion when the lights are low and the bass-and-beats spellbind. That the other bandmates are boys matters little when the singer teases in irresistible tones on "Don't Stop": "Don't stop now/ Just keep going/ Until I ... come." Then there's the reggae-rich anthem "Pussy": "Pussy pussy pussy marijuana!" Indeed, Brazilian Girls fulfill dancehall fantasies and then some.
