Three New Weird America Reasons Why CocoRosie

CocoRosie are available @ iTunes.

CocoRosie

by Walter Price

 

With a mix of electronica, hip hop, performance art, and avant-garde poetry wrapped in hints of folk and quirky pop and playful instrumentation, CocoRosie is beautifully eclectic. Founded by sisters Sierra “Rosie” and Bianca “Coco” Casady in Paris circa 2010, this far out American duo certainly cannot be pigeonholed but if you must, think of them as a concoction of Lykke Li, Rapsody, Beck, Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir, and Björk. But these comparisons do not really give justice to the sounds this outfit is laying out. At times tackling untouchable subjects adding weight to their unique sonic atmospheres.  But, honestly, you’ll have to listen and find a way to describe these tantalizing sounds for yourself. To help you out, I’ve picked three of my favorite tracks to get you started (in no particular order).
