Praise For CocoRosie:
“CocoRosie is the shower we need now in the musical desert.”
– Yoko Ono
"…speaks to the universality of both pain and solidarity."
"Their sixth album is a welcome return to what made them great in the first place."
"The Casady sisters keep it precious and weird even as they explore more expansive pop sounds."
– New York Magazine
“They have terrifyingly beautiful voices . . . their songs inexhaustibly multilayered, fragile, radiant.”
– New York Times
“…sonic alchemists, their combustible cuts toying with strands of pop, ambient, freak folk, and hip-hop…“very beat-based” and packed with “heartbreak, swag, frogs, roosters, and old-timey hooks.”
– AV Club
CocoRosie is the music-based project of American cross-disciplinary performance artists Sierra and Bianca Casady. Their songs 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. Taken as a whole, CocoRosie’s music is an ongoing psychologically intimate dialogue between the siblings. Each sister has multiple personae and vocal styles; Bianca delivers troubadours-style rap while Sierra often responds with ethereal tones while accompanying their voices on harp, piano, or guitar. A quintessential part of their sound is a percussive landscape made using children's toys and other found objects which adds a particular nostalgia to their songs.
In the nearly five years since CocoRosie released their last album, sisters Bianca and Sierra Casady have been far from idle. In addition to composing for theater pieces, collaborating with legendary theater director Robert Wilson, performing with the Kronos Quartet, and more recently popping up on Chance the Rapper’s The Big Day, the duo have been engaged in the messy business of life. Created in fits and starts over the course of four years, amidst the backdrop of death, divorce, mental illness, falling in love, and copious amounts of healing, CocoRosie’s 7th album — Put The Shine On — is a study in extremes, balancing some of the most fresh and adroit pop songs the band has ever crafted, while exploring the most extreme states of human feeling and being — the result being an album that is both pristine and at times harrowing.
Put The Shine On is a record that luxuriates in extremes, reflecting the pain and confusion of mental illness (“They’re trying to Britney Spears me”) and the anguish of unpacking trauma (“Held the lamb in my hand, beheld its eyes / Shocked wide with death” Bianca sings on “Aloha Friday”), while also gleefully celebrating the possibility of newness, of wildness, and the ever-present potential for transformation. Nearly two decades deep into a career marked by experimentation and bucking convention, the duo has made what is arguably the most well-considered, emotionally complicated, and sonically adventurous record of their career.
