All tracks named after girls including cover of MJ’s “Diana”.

Released in other parts of the world in October 2009 and now set for release in America in April 2010, Galaxia Tropicalia can stand against the modern music of Midnight Juggernauts, MGMT, Vampire Weekend or Buraka Som Sistema and shows off the band’s base influences of afro music, psychedelia and the “true to you” sound of Beatles pop. Galaxia Tropicalia also features horns by members of Portugal’s Bambule, violin by Ana Meneses and the special participation of British band, Dead Kids.

Originally, all the tunes on Galaxia Tropicalia would be named after girls and each girl would have a different city. The band choose this concept at the beginning in order to limit their minds to a specific concept and achieve a focused, solid album. Ultimately, the band narrowed the focus to just girls. Who could blame them?
