Part of MeltdownSaturday 4 August 2012
The sibling duo of Sierra and Bianca Cassidy form CocoRosie - a name taken from joining the respective nicknames given to them by their Mother when they were growing up - return to London for the first time since two sell-out shows at Union Chapel in January 2010.
They have regularly collaborated with 2012 Meltdown Director Antony, including a guest spot on their 2005 LP Noah's Ark and most recently on single 'Tearz for Animals', recorded at their home studio in Brooklyn.
Alongside 'Tearz for Animals', CocoRosie also release single 'We Are On Fire' in June 2012, recorded by TV On The Radio's David Sitek.
Jessica 6 is the alter-ego of former Hercules & Love Affair member Nomi Ruiz. She performs songs off the debut album 'See The Light' which includes 'White Horse' and the new single 'In The Heat' which will be released as a remix EP on Monday 6 August via Peace Frog Records.
The bill is completed by an icon from the underground Lebanese scene, Yasmine.
