Midnight In A Perfect World: CocoRosie

Midnight In A Perfect World
Alex Ruder

Few acts have been as captivating over the past 15 years as CocoRosie, a bewitching and fascinating duo comprised of sisters Bianca "Coco" and Sierra "Rosie" Casady. Ever since their 2004 debut album La maison de mon rêve, CocoRosie have been exploring a whimsical, ethereal, and constantly shifting sonic realm that has touched upon lo-fi freak-folk, dreamy synth-pop, operatic hip-hop, cinematic avant-pop, and everything in between. After a couple years of silence, CocoRosie returned late last year with the new singles "Lamb and the Wolf" and "Smash My Head" and kicked off 2020 with the new single "Aloha Friday," all early tastes of their 7th studio album titled Put The Shine On that will be released on March 13th. Their exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World wonderfully encapsulates their wide-ranging music and eclectic influences as they swim through legendary soul songs, unexpected rap cuts, iconic bar anthems, transportive ambient soundscapes, and so much more.
