EDITORS’ NOTES

As a co-founding member of the GRAMMY®-nominated dance-pop act Brazilian Girls, Sabina Sciubba has made a solo debut featuring a wild tour through her eclectic influences. Recorded, produced, and arranged by Sabina (as well as by Brazilian Girls’ longtime producer Frederik Rubens), the album started with an acoustic guitar, as a reaction to her years spent playing dance music. But then sessions in Paris brought out the electric guitars, and the bilingual songwriter really grabbed hold of the material. Moments here recall Françoise Hardy, others Nico, but it’s always all Sabina. The modern production touches on “Non Mi Aspettare” and the depth of sound on the title track make the album a completely contemporary set that happens to have a mix of modern and vintage instruments. There’s a mesmerizing pop beauty to “Long Distance Love” and a dark, Cat Power–demo quality to the double-tracked and somber “The Sun.”
