Cocorosie consists of two sisters, Bianca and Sierra Casady. The two sisters were never close growing up, but formed a strong creative bond as adults when they began making music in their Parisian flat in 2003. Of all places, the bathroom seemed to serve their acoustical needs best. Their lo-fi and experimental sounds caught listeners’ attention. In 2004 they released their first full-length album La Maison de Mon Rve and have followed it up with three others. Their aesthetics and sounds are heavily influenced by Native American spiritualism which they were exposed to as children. The sisters’ dynamic voices, one, classically trained operatic, and the other, childlike and rhythmic, make for an interesting contrast. They often incorporate unlikely instruments such as children’s toys like a bazooka along with classical harp to create a sound truly unique, ethereal and at times haunting.
