Mesmerising performance by CocoRosie
CocoRosie wove a spell over the De La Warr Pavilion on Saturday night. I was mesmerised by the mix of vocals and visuals and could quite happily have stood there for hours without noticing the passing time. There was something almost unreal about these two sisters who were not just playing songs, but creating an experience for the audience. I loved the mix of unusual instruments and the band were excellent, but the thing that sticks in my mind is their two haunting voices, bringing together rap, opera and incantation in a way that seemed totally natural and very beautiful; and very at home in the De La Warr Pavilion.
