Nomadic sibling duo, CocoRosie, will be making their third trip to Australia this January. American born sisters Bianca “Coco” and Sierra “Rosie” Casady began creating their unique blend of pop, folk, blues, electronica, gospel, opera and hip hop while living in Paris in 2003. After becoming estranged for almost a decade, upon reuniting they discovered an instant artistic connection and their first album La Maison de Mon Rêve was released in 2004.
A continuous cycle of recording and touring followed, with the acclaimed Noah’s Ark released in 2005, and The Adventures of Ghosthorse and Stillborn in 2007. The duo spent much of 2008 and 2009 preparing their fourth album Grey Oceans while touring through Buenos Aires, Melbourne, Berlin, New York, and Paris. While in Melbourne, CocoRosie filmed a yet to be released movie in collaboration with Australian director Emma Freeman. At the same time, Emma also produced the duo’s haunting music videos for their singles ‘Lemonade’ and ‘Gallows’, filmed in the Victorian rural town of Yandoit.
