Bianca Casady has embarked on a new project called Bianca Casady & The C.i.A, together with dancer Bino Sauitzvy, musicians Michal Skoda, Takuya Nakamura, Doug Wieselman, and visual artist/pianist J.M.Ruellan. They have announced their debut album, Oscar Hocks, due in early 2016 via FANTASYmusic in Europe and Atlas Chair in America. With an overall darker and more mysterious tone than CocoRosie, Bianca “Coco” said this of her solo work:
“I often played the dark side of CocoRosie. And now I don’t have to worry about being too dark, too scary, too weird.”
There’s more exciting news from Bianca Casady & The C.i.A. They’ll be heading on an extensive European tour bringing their new musical-performance project Porno Thietor to intimate stages. The tour starts on November 6th at Iceland Airwaves and the last show will be in London on December 3rd at the ATP Pop-Up Venue.
In addition to the The C.i.A members, Bianca has also enlisted the help of performer Lærke Grøntved and scenographer Corentin JPM Leven doing light/video and stage design. Porno Thietor “often crosses over into territories of ritual, nightmare and fantasy”, describes the press release.
‘Poor Deal’ is being offered as the album’s first taster, a song that first started from “an untuned piano, a dusty typewriter and a pile of broken umbrellas”. Listen to it below and then watch a teaser trailer for the live show, including another new track, ‘Faded Like a Rose’.
