Garotas Suecas

Tip of the hat to Carrie for the pointer.
I did not know about the music of Garotas Suecas till just now and am glad to have added them to the list of new music to consider.
Below is a sample.
If garage rock/slightly punk-ish sounds are something you enjoy occasionally, this might be a good one. If Pop Art a-la-Warhol is more your thing, then the video might strike a chord, too. The video, actually, did strike a major chord with me.
Either way, this Brazilian band has various gripping things to offer and I'll give them some time.
Their Myspace page is here.

I was surprized, too. I don't have anything that sounds like this. Carrie B. knows her stuff when it comes to music.
I am strangely drawn by the video even though it's not necessarily what my aesthetics is about.
They're performing in the New York area and Brazil for now.
