CocoRosie-Grey Oceans

The voices of two sisters meet in space like charged ions and the atmosphere. The sensory offshoot is no less breathtaking that the celestial showers of aurora borealis. Grey Oceans, CocoRosie’s fourth full length release brings the ethereal and haunting landscapes I’ve come to love but also continues the duo’s sojourn into a more constrained rhythmic and tonal expression. Windingly emotional anchors are dropped into the abyss of timbre and the mind’s ear can’t help but cringe and smile at the same time. Dauntingly dreamy but maturely focused, Grey Oceans dangles some serious meat in front of salivating teeth. Enjoy.
