“This album was written and recorded in LA. We had a lot of fun doing it, we met some incredible people on this process. We felt very free with song structures and melodies. Working with them in an intuitive/more melodic way. Treating each song as it’s own thing. ‘Hangover’ is like summer in space.” – CSS
From the acclaimed 2006 debut Cansei De Ser Sexy to 2011’s La Liberación, CSS returns with their fourth studio album Planta, produced by TV On The Radio’s David Sitek (The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Scarlet Johansson, Santigold). 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.
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.
