More info:
CSS (Cansei de Ser Sexy “I Got Tired of Being Sexy”) are a new wave, synth-pop, indie rock band from Sao Paolo, Brazil. They shot to international success in 2006 being labelled as part of the explosion of New Rave bands. Their debut album “Cansei de Ser Sexy” received international release by Sub Pop / Sire and was almost universally lauded, ending the year in many music magazines best records of 2006 lists, including Uncut, NME, and Q. The album won the 2007 PLUG Independent Music Award for Best Punk Album.

The fourth album by CSS, last years “Planta” is produced by TV on the Radio’s David Sitek - who has also worked with bands such as Yeah Yeah Yeah’s, Liars, Foals & Little Dragon. It sees CSS with their feet firmly in the quirky catchy new wave indie electro pop format. The All Music Guide review said, “…loopy, poetic imagery is carried throughout all of Planta, and helps make it one of CSS’s most creatively fertile and enjoyable pop organisms to date”. And The Quietus review; “The tracks crackle and shimmer with an abandon not heard since their debut.”

At recent shows CSS have played songs from throughout their entire catalogue, including early classics like “Artbitch”, “Let’s Make Love and Listen To Death From Above” and “Music Is My Hot, Hot Sex”.
