|BRAZILIAN GIRLS LETíS MAKE LOVE Limited Vinyl LP
Let's Make Love was produced by long time collaborator Frederik Rubens and came to life over the course of several years. On the album, the band brings a woozy romanticism to many tracks. The album gets its title from the frenetic yet ethereal "Let's Make Love," a track that takes a more classically arranged form than the band's earlier work. At the same time, both album and title track embody the quintessenial spirit of Brazilian Girls: their strange balance of wildness and elegance, cheeky humor and fractured poetry, soulful mystique and libertine wisdom. "Right now 'Let's Make Love' seems like a very good message to put into the world," says Sciubba of the song's inspiration. "It's not even 'Make love, not war'ó;it's just 'Make love,' and nothing else."
First single "Pirates" is a modern-age new wave love song that frontwoman Sabina Sciubba describes as, "a song about sleeping and sleeping together. How we should all sleep more and sleep more together. It would change everything. Actually that's what the whole record is about. It may even be the true meaning of life."
But on songs like the feel-good dance number about social decay, "Wild Wild Web," and "Impromptu"ó;an exquisitely scornful track that Sciubba calls "an anti-conformist anthem," Let's Make Love slips into a decadant mood suited to the album's punk-inspired sensibilities. "The electronica we were creating before has become very popular, so maybe we should be doing that again," says Gutman of Brazilian Girls' shift in aesthetic. "But 'we should' isn't an idea that exists with us. We do whatever we feel in the moment."
