Published Jun 11, 2015Experimental pop sisters Bianca and Sierra Casady haven't shared a CocoRosie album since 2013's Tales of a Grass Widow, but that will change soon, as they've just announced plans for a new LP.
The album's title and release date has not yet been confirmed, but they did open up about the forthcoming record in a press release.
The LP was written and recorded at the band's farm studio in the south of France. While they've expanded their production value over the years, the new release is said to be a return to the lo-fi approach of their debut La Maison de Mon Rêve.
The duo shared the following joint statement in a press release:
This will be our sixth record! Like many of our past records, we wrote and gathered much of the material at our farm studio in the south of France with minimal equipment, vintage toys and antique instruments. Going back to a '4-track' style approach, we limited ourselves to essential, acoustic accompaniment, played by us, and select percussion, toys from our old suit cases dating back to the "La Maison" days. Unlike our more psychedelic/electronic explorations of the last two records, our latest songs have a dusty southern feel with old-timey poetry. We ended up in Argentina where we finished the recordings and mixed the record with engineer Nicolas Kalwill with whom we've worked on two previous records. The spirit of Buenos Aires added to our already teen-romance-nostalgic-mood where we spontaneously shot a music video casting over 30 local girls.
The new songs "Hairnet Paradise" and "Big and Black" can be previewed in the behind-the-scenes video below. CocoRosie have also announced a handful of tour dates, though none in Canada.
