With her sister Sierra, Bianca Casady has created the great surreal Pop-Art-World called CocoRosie, and about the solo work, she says:
” I often played the dark side of CocoRosie. And now I don’t have to worry about being too dark, too scary, too weird.”
After several solo projects such as the publication Girls Against God, theater direction, art exhibitions – Bianca Casady once more steps out of the familiar CocoRosie context to gather long time partners The C.i.A. for a musical-performance project. In the new year to be released as an album in 2016 via FANTASYmusic in Europe and Atlas Chair in North and South America. Casady designs a mysterious and suggestive parallel world starting from an untuned piano, a dusty typewriter and stacks of poems.
Her songs are performative gems from a strange music Wonderland, which can now be experienced in a concert performance. The show has been premiered on August 6th at Summer Festival Kampnagel in Hamburg, followed by Zurcher Theaterspektakel, David Byrne’s London Meltdown Festival, and Berlin PopKultur amongst others.
