Biography

Paris, France (2003 – present)

CocoRosie is an American duo formed in 2003 by sisters Bianca “Coco” and Sierra “Rosie” Casady. The sisters were born and raised in the United States (Sierra, the older of the two, was born in Iowa, and Bianca was born in Hawaii), but formed the band in Paris, France after meeting for the first time in years. Their mother nicknamed them Rosie and Coco, respectively, from which their musical act takes its name. Their music has been called , and incorporates elements of pop, blues, opera, electronica, and hip hop.

CocoRosie began as a duo, with Sierra singing, playing the guitar, piano and harp, and Bianca singing and manipulating various children’s toys, electronic and percussion instruments, as well as other exotic noisemakers. They subsequently added various backing musicians, usually a bassist, keyboardist, and beatboxer. They have been a very active touring group, playing across Europe, the United States, and elsewhere.
They have released five full-length albums: La maison de mon rêve (2004), Noah’s Ark (2005), The Adventures of Ghosthorse and Stillborn (2007), Grey Oceans (2010) and Tales of a GrassWidow (2013).

In 2003, Bianca was growing restless and decided it was time for a change. Leaving her apartment in Brooklyn to travel the world, she ended up at Sierra’s apartment in Paris. Over the course of the next two months, the women spent nearly every waking hour in Sierra’s bathroom, chosen as the most acoustic and isolated room in the apartment. Soon, they had completed both a hip-hop recording (never released) called “word to the crow” and their proper debut album La Maison de Mon Rêve.

    I saw them in Mendoza, Argentina. The show was amazing, so creative and funny! Bianca's voice is everything and I love when she dances.

    Maison definitely contains the most consistent beauty - a CocoRosie album is never going to be "even" or "accessible", and the the new ones do have their moments, but Maison has a more densely packed collection of "moments".

    v I'm not an old fan, so maybe I need some additional years to rate their music accurately, but I don't understand what's the problem with cacophony and "grandma" singing? Those who appreciate the 'weird' factor in music - like myself - will be hooked on such things and find the beauty in it.

    I think these two wasting tallent on making too much kakophony. Summing it's best as background noises/music for relax while talking or making other stuff. Yeah in this purpose is ok.
