Fitted with a new creative team, Bianca Casady (who formed the Coco to her sister Sierra's Rosie) will release Oscar Hocks on January 22nd via Atlas Chair / FANTASYmusic.
"I often played the dark side of CocoRosie," Bianca says of project with her sister. "And now I don't have to worry about being too dark, too scary, too weird."
Today, Casady shared the video for the single "Poor Deal" (which comes as an instant grat track upon preorder of the album), directed by visual artist J.M. Ruellan, one of Casady's longtime collaborators. It's a black and white Blair Witch Project-esque deal that might give you the shivers and calls into question her worries about "being too dark, too scary, too weird."
Watch "Poor Deal" from Bianca Casady & the C.i.A:
But given CocoRosie's penchant for the surreal and avant garde, certainly the idea must be taken with a grain of salt. Perhaps the biggest difference between this project and her work in CocoRosie is that The C.i.A. incorporates a new crew of colaborators, including "dancer Bino Sauitzvy, musicians Michal Skoda, Takuya Nakamura, Doug Wieselman, and visual artist/pianist J.M. Ruellan," and that the music "is staged in a theater-like setting" accompanied by "a small book of poems, photographs and fragments titled Porno Thietor, that include portraits of the characters who live in her songs."
Bianca Casady & The C.i.A. are currently on tour in Europe with plans to bring the show "later in North America."
