CocoRosie Shares “Witch Hunt”

Sister duo CocoRosie releases its brand new song “Witch Hunt.” Currently in the studio, the band is preparing to celebrate their 20th anniversary next year. Dark and cutty, carrying a saccharine nostalgia with necessary sour truths, CocoRosie drops the other shoe with a protest pop tune somehow still asparkle with hope, a glitter lining in the large grey cloud over these growling 20s…

In their nineteen years as CocoRosie, the sisters Sierra and Bianca Casady have released seven albums, each one inspiring controversy and debate in equal amounts to praise; such is their fearlessness and willingness to take risks with their art. This strong creative vision runs through every aspect of their work – from videos to live performances utilizing theatrical costumes and make-up – which they create alongside each new body of songs.

Finding expression for their ideas in other disciplines beyond the traditional musical parameters is paramount to the sisters – and often a source of inspiration for their songwriting. In addition to their album tours and festival performances worldwide, Bianca has held solo exhibitions of her artwork in NYC at Deitch Gallery and Cheim and Read. Bianca has created  “Nightshift,” a dance-theater production and Sierra wrote and performed “Soul Life,” an experimental opera, both staged at the Donau Festival in Krems which they curated in 2012. Continuing on her path to becoming a theater director, Bianca directed two theater plays with the National Theater Academy in Norway and is currently developing new works, exploring new forms of opera and dance where Sierra will play a lead role, to be premiered at the Manchester Festival in 2022.
