Cansei De Ser Sexy - CSS

Sub Pop

With a population of eleven million and an area of over fifteen hundred square kilometers, Sao Paulo is the largest city in the Southern Hemisphere. It’s grown so quickly that major traffic jams are part of everyday life. So, it was a stroke of luck that CSS found a deserted stretch of highway where they could shoot their debut video. Watch for it on word.beats. The band is the product of the blind ambition of five girls and one guy. Like the early punks of the 80’s, CSS couldn’t even play their instruments when they started. But, they wanted to create something new that thumbs its nose at pop celebrity while shamelessly glorifying its appeal. Their new album on the notorious Sub Pop label is a raw and cheeky reproach of pop culture. The songs are unpretentious and unpolished with titles like ‘Let’s Make Love And Listen To Death From Above’ or ‘Meeting Paris Hilton’. Kudos to them for notching up the curiosity factor. By the way, CSS stands for Cansei De Sur Sexy or ‘Tired Of Being Sexy’
