Cochonne: Emergency 12" available for Pre-ORDER!

Sorry State Records' next release, the self-titled 12" EP from Cochonne, is available for pre-order now!

The first (and only) 12" from Durham, North Carolina’s Cochonne, sung in English & French, is a document of female friendship, paranoia and desire. Fevered post-punk, punctuated with synthesizers and found noises. Descended from the likes of Rosa Yemen, Malaria! & more recently, Nots.

The vinyl version is limited to 200 copies and features a silkscreened jacket, art by Jack Thegen-Crowley, and lyrics insert.

We also have Cochonne t-shirts and tote bags available! Click here to order, and listen to the preview tracks "KGB" and "Trop" below!
