CocoRosie is the eccentric and fascinating musical project of sisters Bianca and Sierra Casady. The duo first gained notoriety in the 2000s scene of Brooklyn musicians and artists experimenting with pop, rock, and other genres, and has since continued to evolve their sonic perversions. Making great use of blending two disparate vocal styles — one crooning and nostalgic, the other childlike and rap-influenced — as well as their unique use of toys and children’s instruments, CocoRosie continues to make highly innovative music. The band, including a beatboxer and synth player, rolled up to the BTRhouse in Austin, Texas, during SXSW 2016 to take over the backyard, completely making it their own for this very special performance under the big tree.
