CocoRosie Comes to Terminal 5 Tomorrow Night

June 10th, 2010

The Casady sisters, Bianca (vocals, guitar and harp) and Sierra (vocals and percussion), grew up traveling across the United States and later formed the freak-folk band CocoRosie in Paris. The moniker is a combination of their mother’s nicknames for them: Coco for Bianca and Rosie for Sierra. Their first album, La Maison de Mon Rêve, came out in 2004, and soon the band, which performs live with additional musicians, was playing alongside the likes of Devendra Banhart and Battles. They’ve since released three more LPs, the most recent of which, Grey Oceans, came out last month, and their current tour brings CocoRosie (above, playing “Werewolf” on French television) to Terminal 5 tomorrow night.
