Rococode is the Vancouver, Canada based indie pop duo of Laura Smith and Andrew Braun. Their music weaves a lush tapestry of synths, guitars and soundscapes around duelling boy/girl vocals and heavy bass and drums.
They released their debut album Guns, Sex & Glory to much critical and press acclaim in early 2012. The record was produced by Ryan Guldemond (Mother Mother, Hannah Georgas) and mixed by John Congleton (St.Vincent, Polyphonic Spree). As bands do, they took to the road and spent the better part of the next 18 months touring Canada and the US in various capacities.
Never satisfied with the status quo, Rococode concocted a brave plan to create their follow up. They coaxed producers Caleb Shreve (Phantogram, Bear Hands) from New York and Ted Gowans (Tegan and Sara, Fences) from Los Angeles to set up a studio in a cabin, off the grid, in the isolated coastal forest of British Columbia. The forthcoming follow up takes its time (mirroring the recording process) and settles into danceable grooves, taking a more subtle approach to the band’s constant juxtaposition of light and dark.
Four long years in the making, Rococode released their sophomore album, “Don’t Worry It Will Be Dark Soon” on February 26, 2016 via Marquis in Canada and the US.
