Sabina - 'Toujours'

Sabina Sciubba gets multi-lingual on Nico-esque collection

Sabina - 'Toujours'

Album Info

  • Release Date: March 24, 2014
  • Label: Naim Edge
8 / 10 Like Eurodisco legend Giorgio Moroder, Sabina Sciubba was born in Italy and grew up in Germany, but for her first solo outing she’s eschewed the electropop of her New York-based Brazilian Girls troupe to record a more lilting, guitar-based, Nico-esque collection in Paris, where she now resides. Confused? You will be. Everything about ‘Toujours’ (‘always’ in French) has an international flavour, and it’s sung in no less than six languages. On paper that might look like plain old showing off, yet the various tongues (often employed within the same song) always feel appropriate. Most importantly, the tunes – from the devilishly catchy title track to the clattering, anthemic ‘Viva L’Amour’ and the swoonsome, panoramic ‘Tabarly’, complete with romantic mariachi trumpets – are superb. You’ll feel love.
