CocoRosie Release Video for “Gravediggress”

CocoRosie Release Video for "Gravediggress", North American Tour Starts Next Month

CocoRosie have unveiled an expressive video for recent single “Gravediggress”. Directed by CocoRosie’s own Bianca Casady, the clip was shot in Southern France, spanning several different seasons. The Casady sisters’ mother plays the masked Gravediggress, whose stuffed hands struggle at menial tasks such as picking wheat and taking laundry from the line – she emerges from the imagination of the clown, played and danced by Biño Sauitzvy. The narrative is a loose journey through the psyche of a lonely outcast who finds ecstasy and company in nature.

“The filming was spontaneous though it took much more time than a typical music video and without the pressure of a studio and crew we were able to wander and shoot in this way. We let the work steep and revisited the project months later for another stage of development,” explains Bianca.

“I prefer to shoot intimately, just me and the other and the force of the elements. Some times our hands got frozen cold, or we got attacked by swarms of mosquitoes, spiders crawled out of every hole and we truly marveled over the moon and pink sky.”

CocoRosie are currently on tour in the UK, and will be embarking on an extensive North American tour in less than a month – see the full list of upcoming dates below.
