Sabina's 'Viva L'Amour' Premieres; Solo Tour Dates Announced
"Viva L'Amour," the latest track off the first solo album Toujours (due February 18 on Bar/None Records) from critically lauded artist and performer Sabina, is streaming now at Consequence of Sound: http://bit.ly/1dBQ1Ke The new music has received early critical acclaim from Mojo calling it "a hip gyrating cocktail shaker of wiggy bossa nova and squally Farfisa" while Foam Magazine furthers its "just as racy and as fun as Brazilian Girls." To celebrate the release, Sabina will embark on select tour dates on the east coast. See below for details.
Best known as a co-founding member of the Grammy-nominated band Brazilian Girls, the debut record rediscovers Sabina's unique voice, anthemic songwriting, and her signature multi-lingual story-telling, albeit this time within a quite different musical setting.
Toujours was recorded, produced and arranged by Sabina as well as Brazilian Girls producer Frederik Rubens. Of the recording process, Sabina notes, "I started this project on the acoustic guitar, as an escape, in a way, from the party music I've been doing for some time. But after a while I felt like I had gone off too far, I was out in the woods, so I came back to the city-And the city was Paris. Frederik and I started working on a few of the songs with an electric guitar. It took a more rock, more lavish direction, still intimate, but not sleepy. It felt right." The new music is inspired by the rock and pop classics of the '60s and '70s but within more contemporary recording techniques.
