The band first became known through the internet. Their fotolog gained popularity and their songs were frequently downloaded from Trama Virtual's website (a Brazilian website similar to MySpace Music). After this overnight sensation, Trama Virtual invested heavily in the band, inviting a series of Brazilian and British journalists to report on them. Articles were printed in several Brazilian magazines and even British newspapers such as The Guardian,[3] whose reporter was invited to see the band playing just before their signing for the debut, at a club in São Paulo. He predicted that they "could be the biggest band ever to come out of South America".[4] Songs by CSS found their way into the Latin American broadcasting of The Simple Life (with the song "Meeting Paris Hilton"), the Brazilian Big Brother reality show (with the song "Superafim") and the South American version of the game The Sims 2: Nightlife ("Computer Heat", including a version in Simlish). Still without a record deal, they released two independent EPs in 2004, and played that year at TIM Festival, on the same night and at the same stage as Soulwax and Kraftwerk. Fotolog. ...

In 2005 they signed with the Trama Virtual label (the first, and to this day the second only band to), and in October their first album was released in Brazil, along with an 7-track EP that was sold at concerts. A limited edition version of the album had a CD-R included, so that the buyer could burn a copy of the album onto the CD-R to give to someone else as a gift.[5] In Brazil the album has reportedly sold 5,000 copies to date, but neither the album nor the singles have reached charts. Two music videos were also released: "Off The Hook" and "Alala". "Off the Hook" was directed by guitar player Ana Rezende, and filmed at the home of band members Carolina Parra and Adriano Cintra, where CSS recorded most of their songs.
