CSS – CITY GRRRL (Pop/Electro – Brazil)

CSS

“City Grrrl” is taken off Cansei De Ser Sexy‘s new album La Liberación, out now on V2 Music. This track is the second official single from the album and it comes with a great video shot in NYC and directed by Cody Critcheloe (of SSION fame), who also contributes vocals on the song. The video is almost autobiographical as it tells the story of a young girl who leaves her suburban home to move to the big city, much like CSS frontsinger Lovefoxxx did in her own time. Listen to “City Grrrl” and first single “Hits Me Like A Rock” just below…

GIVERS – MEANTIME (Indie/Pop – US)

Louisiana five-piece Givers are an indie pop band which formed in 2009 in Lafayette. The band consists of Tiffany Lamson (vocals, percussion), Taylor Guarisco (vocals, guitar), Josh LeBlanc (bass, guitar), Nick Stephan (keyboards, flute, saxophone), Kirby Campbell (drums, vocals). After a first album released on Glassnote Records, Givers are back with more feel-good sounds and flavours of their native Louisiana. The band’s new single “Meantime” is another bright and breezy indie pop number, complete with joyous choruses and twinkling xylophones.

The song has already found itself the subject of many remixes, including one by Bombay Bicycle Club and more recently by RAC. Remix Artist Collective is represented by Andre Alan Anjos this time around, who gives an interesting new spin to this awesome track.

CANSEI DE SER SEXY – MOVE ON (ElectroPop – Brazil)

Brazilian indie-rock sextet Cansei de Ser Sexy (commonly known as CSS) formed in 2003 in São Paulo. Rumour has it that they got their name from a quote by Beyoncé, who said “I’m tired of being sexy”. The Portuguese translation provided Cansei de Ser Sexy with their name. CSS owes a lot of its success to word-of-mouth and internet buzz, mainly from Trama Virtual, a kind of Brazilian MySpace.

In 2005, they signed with Trama Virtual and in October of the same year their first album was released in Brazil.
