Brazilian Girls takes us into a slow, emotional dance with their new single “Karaköy” where they capture the bittersweet longing and warm nostalgia we experience towards a city that we’ve enamored. Built on minimalistic yet intricate rhythm, “Karaköy” is a self-soothing track that touches upon small, intimate memories and the unforgettable grandiosity of the place. Stream below:

“We had the chance to perform in Istanbul at Nublu. During our stay, we went to the studio and recorded for our new record. Anyone who’s been to Istanbul will agree that this city truly reflects the meeting of Orient and Occident. The East and West meet here, mingle but don’t mix.” She adds, “The song expresses longing for something etheric and sensual, something deeply rooted in one’s DNA that can’t be expressed in sentences, only in names, in archaic terms, in touches and looks.”

The track is from the quartet’s upcoming new album Let’s Make Love, which will be on April 13. They will start touring in May:
