CocoRosie – Heartache City

CocoRosie is an American musical group formed in 2003 by sisters Bianca “Coco” and Sierra “Rosie” Casady. The sisters were born and raised in the United States, but formed the band in Paris after meeting for the first time in years. Their music has been called “freak folk”, and incorporates elements of pop, blues, opera, electronica, and hip hop. CocoRosie began as a duo, with Sierra singing, playing the guitar, piano and harp, and Bianca singing and manipulating various children’s toys, electronic and percussion instruments, as well as other exotic noisemakers. They subsequently added various backing musicians, usually a bassist, keyboardist, and beatboxer. They have been a very active touring group, playing across Europe, the United States, and elsewhere. They have released five full-length albums: La maison de mon rêve (2004), Noah’s Ark (2005), The Adventures of Ghosthorse and Stillborn (2007), Grey Oceans (2010) and Tales of a GrassWidow (2013).

Last September, Sierra and Bianca were part of the Future Feminism art collective including Antony (of Antony and the Johnsons), Kembra Pfahler and Johanna Constantine. The five women made art and organized a lecture series as a call to arms to reorganize as a species and affirm archetypally feminine values. Right before that, they premiered their collaboration of Bob Wilson’s Peter Pan in Paris and Berlin and completed a world tour in support of their album, Tales of a Grasswidow. In their eleven years as CocoRosie, the sisters have released five albums:Tales of A GrassWidow (2013), Grey Oceans (2010), The Adventures of Ghosthorse and Stillborn (2007), Noah’s Ark (2005), and their first album,La Maison de Mon Reve (2004) – 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 performance utilizing theatrical costumes and make up which they create alongside each new body of songs.

CocoRosie – Heartache City Lyrics:
give me some news
i have to know
by wind or by winding road
i have to know

my brother sin of sin
tin cup rain goes straight to the brain
just like a bullet
you attacked and stuck
you know i love you like Diane cluck

my sweet thing now your dead
disappeared to fog
like the neighbors dog
i know you love me
and you meant no harm
so all is forgiven from the dusty farm

give me some news
i have to know
by wind or by winding road
i have to know

don’t forget all the times
i nearly died
in your arms like a daisy
hot on a farm
my torture was thus i took what i must
had to have you had to know
now polished and pressed
dressed to impress you falling all around
I’m outside the door
on you garden’s floor
bareing bossom a blossom
soul reeking awesome

my lover ravaged thing
headache city don’t go there again
flicker your fire
but don’t get burned
you know i love you ash to the urn

my holy unpredictable
my fable teller
my starry stellar
you know i loved you from first eyes we met
and now I’m ready red hot and wet

give me some news
i have to know
by wind or by winding road
i have to know
