Cross-disciplinary performance artists and sisters, Bianca and Sierra Casady, aka CocoRosie, blend a myriad of styles and references, from hip-hop to folk and opera, shaping the most painful of experiences into memorable and evocative pop songs.
CocoRosie’s music has influenced a wide variety of artists – from Chance the Rapper collaborating with them on his last album, to Melanie Martinez stating the sisters are a major inspiration, as well as Jay Rock on “Knock It Off” and Macklemore/Ryan Lewis on “Stay at Home Dad” sampling their music and respected artists like Yoko Ono and Jim Jarmusch praising the sisters. Previous musical and artistic collaborations include ANOHNI, Devendra Banhart and experimental theatre director Robert Wilson.
“The last few years have been the quietest period in terms of performance or releasing material since our inception. I feel like we’ve been somehow kind of gaining the ability to make more accessible music year by year, even if other people don’t always hear it that way. I feel like we’ve changed a lot. It took many years for us to be seen as like adults, even though we were in our early twenties when we started”, explains Bianca Casady.
