CocoRosie’s New Album Grey Oceans Out

Indie-darling sister duo CocoRosie’s fourth album Grey Oceans builds up on their already famous style of juxtaposition, not only of sounds (classical instruments, computer-generated background music and sheer noise, especially from toys) but also of voices (one classically trained, the other squeaky and shrill). Although their electro-folk albums are sometimes too arty and self-indulgent, they have the merit of transforming a series of almost out-of-key layers of sound into something truly melodic and catchy.
There is no official video available yet, but have a listen to Grey Ocean’s first single Lemonade, a perfect example of CocoRosie’s eerie, fairytale-like atmosphere.
