Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Subburbia is Emil, Ernani, Marina and Vir: two lads that met when Stone Roses were rocking the brazilian radio, and two school drop-out girls that can’t come up with anything than making music.
In the brazilian press, Subburbia is compared to CSS all the time. The band obviously hates it, but admits that there are a few things in common and hopefully, many others separating them. This comparison has not much to do with their sound, but loads with their gig, which can put you in a certain mood that only Lovefoxx would be able to in a decade back.
They would rather be compared to Iceage, but they have no wave, and they care about stuff. And also, around 10 people in Brazil know Iceage (Subburbia counting).
This recurrent comparison might come from the fact that like CSS, Subburbia don’t sound much brazilian. They sound just… new and closer to the reality of our unbound world. They plan to prove this right in their first UK and Europe tour, happening in 2013.
