Whilst they have undoubtedly produced many a moment of weird beauty over the last decade or so, CocoRosie are rarely a cosy listening experience. Sisters Bianca and Sierra Casady have a history of tapping into the uncomfortable, taboo and offbeat, both musically and lyrically. Sixth album Heartache City continues the CR lineage of both beauty and discomfort. Whilst not as overtly provocative as some of CocoRosie’s early work, there is still a raw creeping darkness to the melodies. Even during its most beautiful glimmers the album is not a relaxing experience. But neither is it an unrewarding one.

Over the years, CocoRosie slowly drifted away from their lo-fi roots and toward sounds that emphasize the sophistication of their songs. On Tales of a GrassWidow, Sierra and Bianca Casady polish away some of the more grating edges of their previous album, Grey Oceans, but these songs aren't all sweetness and light: "After the Afterlife" begins the album with deceptive delicacy before synths take the track in a darker and more mysterious direction. Indeed, this is some of CocoRosie's most electronic-based music, in large part because the Casadys worked with producer Valgeir Sigurðsson, whose Scandinavian folktronic flair brings out the similarities in the sisters' music to Björk and Múm.

Produced in association with Valgeir Sigurðsson , 'Tales of a GrassWidow' features eleven songs and, in keeping with prior compositions, synthesizes electronic and organic music conveying a compelling futuristic, return-to-nature sound. Amongst the 11 tracks that weave together to create 'Tales of a GrassWidow' is 'Gravediggress', whose recent release to the web saw CocoRosie enthusiastically welcomed back by fans and critics alike. Itʼs a foreboding track, representative of the albumʼs overarching theme, the tale of an imagined conversation between an abandoned child and an outcast old woman. Their voices blend and overlap, suggesting the woman and child are the same person.

Grey Oceans is the fourth full-length studio album by CocoRosie and was released in May 2010. It is the band's Sub Pop Records debut since their departure from Touch & Go Records. The sound is more different in compare to former realeses. The production is clearer, the instrumention brighter and less electronic. It features a common use of string instruments (mandolin on Trinity's Crying, sitar on Smokey Taboo and harp on Gallows) and piano, also string and brass arrangments were composed for a few tracks (cellos on Undertaker and The Moon Asked the Crow and trumpets and trombones on Lemonade).

A violin begins to play off stage and the voice of old Bianca arrives, carried by sounds of sea and broken shells. The melodies take both the rhymes of childhood and old blues or jazz titles of the southern United States. CocoRosie brings in their intimacy in their world of sweetness and melancholy, magic and pain, as if they offered us their diary written for four hands. The violinist sometimes sings with them and her voice makes the interpretation of “Beautiful Boys” superb.

Camille and her enthusiastic supporters in the French musical press may be tired of the Björk comparison but, frankly, it is impossible to imagine a record such as Music Hole without the trailblazing work of the tiny Icelandic wonder. Time has abundantly proven than Björk's conception of pop music was a lot more than quirky novelty. Her boundless imagination, particularly in the mixing of organic and inorganic sounds and in the liberation of the human voice as a creative tool (rather than as a lyric broadcaster, or even as a singer), has provided the seeds for some of the most interesting – or at the very least idiosyncratic – acts to emerge in recent years. And this is a truly global influence, one that seems particularly attuned to independent spirits the world over, many of multi-ethnic origins: Bat for Lashes, Animal Collective, Panda Bear, Stina Nordenstam, Emiliana Torrini, Cocorosie, Juana Molina, and of course, Camille. Compared to Molina's much acclaimed Un Día, Camille's project of the same year Music Hole is less hypnotic, but certainly more fun.

On l'avait laissé avec Babel (2014), double album enregistré avec The Delano Orchestra, qui succédait au tout acoustique Toboggan (2013), conçu en solitaire. Cet enchainement confirmait l'une des manies de Jean-Louis Murat, qui a en sainte horreur l'idée de reproduire, deux fois de suite le même schéma de travail. Après avoir tourné avec eux tout au long de l'année 2015, il est entré en studio en compagnie du clavier Gaël Rakotondrabe (Antony And The Johnsons, CocoRosie.) et du bassiste américain Christopher James Thomas. Avec ces musiciens issus du jazz, auxquels il faut ajouter un habitué des lieux, le batteur Stéphane Reynaud, Murat a composé les morceaux de Morituri, entre juin et aout dernier.
