CocoRosie: Tales of a Grass Widow
I decided to make the most of my last few days in the California summer soaking up the sunshine, laying by the pool like a fat cat. During one of these sunburning sessions I was chatting to my friend's little sister about music, swapping recommendations, one of which was CocoRosie.
These Paris-based American freak folk sisters have a completely unique sound, most of their music is experimental with various genres and instruments being used throughout their 5 released albums, the latest of which is 'Tales of a Grass Widow'.
Sierra (Rosie) has that sort of unconventional voice that sounds similar to Julia Stone's, with Bianca (Coco) supporting with floaty backing vocals. The best way to describe this odd duo would be strangely beautiful, as their music is so different song to song it's hard to narrow it down in to one specific genre or style. I think you'll just have to decide for yourself.
