Transcending traditional genre boundaries, the music of Cérebro Eletrônico defies simple definitions as it floats between electronica, rock, pop, and MPB. Contrary to several other Brazilian bands and artists who have drawn inspiration from the musical cannibalism of the tropicalismo movement in the late ’60s, the eclectic genre-mixing of Cérebro Eletrônico does not sound at all forced or self-centered.

The melodies of Cérebro Eletrônico are very direct, often catchy in that familiar pop culture way, but at the same time the musical arrangements are deliberately unconventional and surprising. In fact, the very existence of the band in part appears to be a reaction to the streamlined and predictable character of the contemporary mainstream music scene. Tatá Aeroplano once said in an interview that most modern music is like Hollywood films, in that if you hear the beginning of one song, you usually know how it will sound in the middle and how it will end. Cérebro Eletrônico aim to do the exact opposite with their music, with the explicit objective of always trying to surprise the listener.

The simple yet quite exquisite melodies, the intelligent lyrics, the fresh sound, and the elegant production earned Cérebro Eletrônico almost ecstatic praise from many critics and a rather small but very enthusiastic population of hardcore fans.
