Coco Electrik is partly made up of Anne Booty who sure is one interesting lady. First off, and Anne I apologize for any offense that this might give, what a name!
Born in Brisbane in the late 70’s to a teacher and an accountant Anne now resides in England, dividing her time between London and Shoreham-by-Sea. An English and philosophy graduate, sporadic journalist, and one time Ken Russell associate. Favourite authors include Flannery O’Connor and Jean Genet. You can check out a short story, Jack & Jill, by Anne Booty over at Scarecrow Short Fiction.
The upcoming album from Coco Electrik, Army behind The Sun (pre-order), was recorded with the help of Matty (Skylab) Ducasse on guitar, Adam DeGruchy on bass and Martin Dean on drums. The album
" features slices of esoteric pop and slipped-up-slowed-down psychedelic punk funk in equal measure. (Bandwagon) and is "full of spikiness, zeal and slutty, filthy funk, the latter of which it’s drenched in" (IDJ Magazine).
For me Coco Electrik reminds me somewhat of Roisin Murphy (mentioned here before and who also has a new album coming out soon). There are similar kinds of feels to the sound they produce however, I reckon though that Coco Electrik will appeal to those that prefer a bit more electro and (dare I say it) booty in their music. You really gotta check out the cover of Soft Cell's Tainted Love also-very nicely done.
This tune is actually from Royal Appointment and features Coco Electrik but is being released on the upcoming album. Originally released in 2005, this is the Dub it Red version of Paint it Red (emusic), released on TummyTouch. Slightly more minimal and funky than the original, with a bouncy rhythm that will certainly appeal more to shaking 'it' as the party gets started.
