Brazilian Girls is the first album by Brazilian Girls. It was released on February 1, 2005 by Verve Records. The album mixes a number of different musical styles, from reggae to samba and house to acid jazz, as well as many different languages, as lead singer Sabina Sciubba goes from English to French, Italian, German and Spanish.

The song "Me gustas cuando callas" ("I like you when you're quiet") is based on a poem by Pablo Neruda, from his well-known 1924 collection Veinte poemas de amor y una canción desesperada, and "Die Gedanken sind frei" ("Thoughts Are Free") is a German protest song about the freedom of thought that became popular with the revolutions of 1848. The French song title "Les sirène(s) de la fête" means "the mermaid(s) of the party."
