#277: Sabina - Toujours

For Italian-born, French-raised, multi-lingual artiste Sabina Sciubba, creative freedom is everything. Once vocalist of New York’s Brazilian Girls, Sciubba has now struck solo, relishing in the creative autonomy this has afforded her and as such released a debut record full of rich and varied melody, picture-painting lyricism and an almost tangible level of emotional candour. From opening track “Cinema” to the closing moments of final track “Going Home” eleven tracks later, Toujours takes listeners through a series of varying moods an aesthetics with Sciubba’s dark wit a permanent motif that transcends language barriers.
