[Indie] Daisy Chain – Bianca Casady

Bianca Casady
Daisy Chain

You may have heard of the talented sister duo CocoRosie some time in the recent past. They’ve been making some pretty innovative stuff—characterized by experimental vocals, depth of lyrics, and feminine power. Today we bring you a release from half of the CocoRosie project, Bianca Casady. The Paris-based producer has released her track, “Daisy Chain,” and we’re pretty stoked about how different it is.

The best way we can describe this tune is beautifully morbid, and its morbidity lies equally in the instrumentation as it does the lyrics. Demonstrating her French influence, Casady opens “Daisy Chain” with Mr. Sad Accordion, which is our name for her accordion sample, not an actual person. We wish. She simultaneously brings in a sample of a piano, but it’s like one of those pianos you’d find in an abandoned house off the interstate that you really shouldn’t go in. She continues to play on these creepy versions of accordion, piano and eventually guitar in ways that perfectly compliment her death-ridden lyrics: “We’re all in line for the daisy chain… nothing but a chain gang pickin’ wild flowers by the roadside. No one in the boneyard bringing milk and honey to their loved ones.” We’ll leave the interpretation up to you. But the interpretation we will leave you with is that of the whole song—a creepy success.

Chiddy Bang – By Your Side (Ft. CocoRosie)

By Your Side, a new CocoRosie remix by Chiddy Bang is the shit. Excuse my language, but it is what it is. I listened to this track five times in a row. Some might consider Chiddy Bang aka Team Swelly a little on the softer side, but the duo put out catchy cuts nonstop.

CocoRosie is the real story though. Comprised of two sisters, Bianca “Coco” and Sierra “Rosie” Casady, who were born and raised in the United States, but actually didn’t bond their musical talents together until reuniting in Paris in 2003 after years from being apart from each other. Since they have recorded four full length albums and have a massive following across the United States and Europe.
