Actually the Brazilian Girls were not what they promised, firstly they did not come from Brazil and secondly they had only one girl on board with Sabina Sciubba. The Grammy nominated electro-punk band disbanded in 2010 and their singer chose Paris as her new home. It was here that "Toujours" was created, her first solo album, which caused a stir with its title track via YouTube video, on which the artist "dresses" herself naked, only with a ukulele, riding a donkey. "Toujours" is a bit different from what Sabina once did with her Brazilian Girls: less Electro, less Punk, but more Garage and LoFi. Even the title song is rocky with weird organ sounds and rumbling drums - The B-52's on dope. "Long Distance Love" can sometimes be considered a Patti Smith pop song, "Mystery Fever", on the other hand, turns to mariachi rock with trumpets and fuzz guitars. Sciubba also publishes its texts in Italian, French, Spanish, English and German.
