From the acclaimed 2006 debut Cansei De Ser Sexy to 2011’s La Liberacion, CSS returns with their fourth studio album Planta, produced by TV On The Radio’s David Sitek (TV On the Radio, Foals, Yeah Yeah Yeahs).
While exploring new ways of writing, Planta’s infectious tones show a unique combination of pop, dance, punk and reggae that make for the perfect summer soundtrack.
Co-written by Rancid’s Tim Armstrong, the playful, synth-and-beats-filled track Hangover delivers the energy that keeps the party going strong until the morning after. CSS’s lead singer, Lovefoxxx, says Hangover “is like summer in space for me”.
Planta consists of irresistibly danceable tracks beginning with the album’s first offering, Honey and the intensely energetic Dynamite. With a seamless downshift, CSS charms you with songs like Sweet and Frankie Goes to North Hollywood slowing things down for an easy sunny afternoon listen as you soak up the mesmerizing electronic notes. Like a Planta to water this album is a celebration of love, friendship, and fun.
