Album: CSS, Planta (SQE Music)
The Brazilian female four-piece should have nailed the sound of the summer here, with their shimmery, bouncy electro dance-pop.
Lyrics oscillate between rallying cries to party and lamenting hangovers and heartbreaks, all delivered with youthful, defiant exuberance by bratty-voiced singer Lovefoxxx. But the sound tends towards the fizzy and tinny, and Planta feels lightweight; not much really catches the ear or imagination.
