CocoRosie - "Child Bride"

CocoRosie's new video is about what the song is about, a child bride. It follows a young girl, who appears to be about six or seven years old, as she is married off to and lives with a man much older than herself. It's a disturbing and saddening scene, especially considered that the practice of child marriage is still common in many parts of the world.

CocoRosie released their most recent album, Tales of a Grass Widow, in May of this year.
