Tales Of A CocoRosie Tour

Bianca and Sierra Casady – otherwise known as the “Coco” and “Rosie,” respectively, in CocoRosie – will be on the road through November showing off the band’s new album. Currently in the midst of touring Europe, the sisters have just added nearly two dozens North American dates.

CocoRosie is a duo who the New York Daily News once said sounds “like it was made by two spindly dolls trapped in a snowglobe. … At times, Bianca sounds like Billie Holiday – had she been dug up and stuck in a David Lynch movie. At other times, she sounds like a creaking door in a horror flick, or a horse neighing. Sister Sierra provides an unlikely contrast, bellowing in a classically trained operatic soprano.”

The band’s new album, Tales Of A GrassWidow, which was released in May, is described as some of the duo’s most electronic-based music. AllMusic.com notes that’s “ in large part because the Casadys worked with producer Valgeir Sigurðsson, whose Scandinavian folktronic flair brings out the similarities in the sisters’ music to Björk and Múm.” The website adds that although the album’s overall tone is somber, tunes like “Roots Of My Hair” and “Villain” prove CocoRosie “can write a pop song (granted, a pop song with harpsichord and violin breaks) when they wish to.”

If you’re in the mood for one of those somber tracks, check out the official video for “Child Bride.”
