CocoRosie-After The Afterlife

Freak Folk.  Have you ever heard about that kind of music?  It is a mix of pop,opera,electronica,blues and hip hop. The CocoRosie duo is here to give us an example of what this music is exactly. Coco and Rosie are two girls who met each other in Paris and formed their band there in 2003. They have played in Europe, USA and elsewhere. Their last music video of "After the Afterlife" was published by Nowness and it's something between heaven and hell. Divine landscapes vs dark, mystical creatures are featured in the video. If you can't imagine what's afterlife, then you have many reasons to watch this video and read the lyrics here.








CocoRosie-After the Afterlife

Welcome to the afterlife
Welcome to the afterlife
(Repeat)

Sitting by the river, I think I smell some rain
Silver puddles glitter behind the old jail
Wet snails get wetter, crawling towards perfume
The air silks like snow
Moth wings crumble by a day-lit fire
Ash of dead wood pile
Higher, pyre for fox guts
Blazing mires

Welcome to the afterlife
Welcome to the afterlife
(Repeat)

Afternoon time, afterlife times,
Twilight's best for Venus flytrap
Cloudless drops tear at my cheeks
Bruised speaker raven's beak
Neon stars twinkle in the night
Sage smoke, rainbow, money signs

Welcome to the afterlife
Welcome to the afterlife
(Repeat)
