Le retour des sœurs Casady sur le devant de la scène

Cross-disciplinary performance artists and sisters, Bianca and Sierra Casady, aka CocoRosie, blend a myriad ofstyles and references, from hip-hop to folk and opera, shaping the most painful of experiences into memorableand evocativepop songs. They have released seven albums to date: Put The Shine On (2020), Heartache City(2015), Tales of a Grasswidow (2013), Grey Oceans (2010), The Adventures of Ghosthorse and Stillborn (2007),Noah’s Ark (2005), and debut album La maison de mon rêve (2004).

CocoRosie’s music has influenced a wide variety of artists-from Chance the Rapper collaborating with them on hislast album, to Melanie Martinez stating the sisters are a major inspiration, as well as Jay Rock on “Knock It Off” andMacklemore/Ryan Lewis on “Stay at Home Dad” sampling their music and respected artists like Yoko Ono and JimJarmusch praising the sisters. Previous musical and artistic collaborations include ANOHNI, Devendra Banhart andexperimental theatre director Robert Wilson.

“The last few years have been the quietest period in terms of performance or releasing material since ourinception,” explains Bianca. I feel like we've been somehow kind of gaining the ability to make more accessiblemusic year by year, even if other people don’t always hear it that way. I feel like we’ve changed a lot. It took manyyears for us to be seen as like adults, even though we were in our early twenties when we started. We were putinto this weird box of being seen like little girls playing dress up, which was tiresome. Thankfully, lot has happenedin the last fifteen years in terms of awareness around female artists and queer artists and differing points of view.It feels good to talk about these things. It feels good to be a part of that.”
