When I saw that Brazilian Girls had booked a show at the Roxy Theater for January 13, I immediately emailed their manager to see if they had new music in the works.
Fans will know that their last album — the Grammy-nominated “New York City” – was released in 2008 and then things went kind of quiet.
The band’s extraordinary frontwoman Sabina Sciubba had two children, lives in Paris, and released a solo album in 2014, which all seemed to make a reunion less likely.
But the show announcement was a hint of hope. And I was thrilled to find out they had a new song to share with us –“The Critic”.
It became an immediate fave on MBE.
The band is in the studio finishing up a new album that will be released on Yebo Records AND will appear live on MBE NEXT THURSDAY to premiere more new songs. Don’t miss it.

p.s. the band’s return prompted a conversation among our music staff about our favorite Brazilian Girls songs. Mine is “Good Time”. Jason Bentley loves “Lazy Lover”. And our KCRW Presents coordinator Mary Chellamy picks “Don’t Stop”.
