New CocoRosie – “God Has A Voice, She Speaks Through Me”

A year after The Adventures Of Ghosthorse & Stillborn, the sisters Casady are back with a digital-only single, “God Has A Voice, She Speaks Through Me.” We’re told Bianca and Sierra are working a new album, which will be out in 2009, and that, like “God..” it will involve “exploring spiritual dance music, driven by oceanic and apocalyptic themes.” So, kinda like last time, no? It’s also mentioned that “Until then, the girls will continue their endless summer journey, one that has taken them to beach side studios around the world, where folk musicians from Madagascar and Reunion Island gathered to lend their hands in creating the future lives of CocoRosie.” This should provide some fascinating sonic, textural overlaps. For now, we can offer “God Has A Voice,” an instructional auto-tuning paeon to Mama Nature.

Speaking of voices, part of the charm and emotional tugging of The Adventures Of Ghosthorse & Stillborn were the fragile, idiosyncratic vocals overlapping with fragile, colorful lyricism (tales of intimate escape, private languages and rituals, communing with simple beauty, etc), so the vocal effects take a little getting used, though almost immediately they do make it all the easier to dance. And, after a half dozen spins? This song offers some supreme springtime anthemics. Keep your eyes peeled for the video, which is due in a couple of weeks.

“God Has A Voice, She Speaks Through Me” is out digitally via Touch & Go. There’ll be a 7″ picture disc out on 7/8. You can pre-order that here.
