CSS

São Paulo natives and festival favourites CSS are a five-piece band who got together in the “New Rave” scene of the mid-2000s, using the internet to reach out to each other and their fans – and win an international deal with super-hip US label Sub Pop as a result.

Singer Lovefoxxx, with her fashion and art background, is the band’s figurehead and vital to their unique visual style. CSS’s three albums to date – Cansei de Ser Sexy (2006), Donkey (2008) and last year’s La Liberación – fuse rave reggae and punk into a sound that never stands still, and always makes you want to move.
