Gallows, eerily sung by CocoRosie. CocoRosie is an indie 'freak folk' act by sisters Bianca and Sierra Casady. The name of the band, apparently, is an amalgam of their mother's nickname for each of them. Bianca is Coco. Sierra is Rosie.
Coco and Rosie like to play with the sound: they are known to have borrowed sounds from a snake charmer's flute, squeaky forgotten wind-up toys and kittens (mewling).
The song 'Gallows' is taken from the CocoRosie's forth album ('Grey Oceans', 2010). The video, all gothic, was directed by one Emma Freeman. Freeman also directed CocoRosie's video for 'Lemonade'.
