The Tulsa, OK-based duo, Desi and Cody, describe their second album, “Yes This Is Killing Us,” as a “dark comedy.” United both through music and matrimony, their latest collaboration exposes the perils and triumphs of relationships. Desi’s seductive voice combined with Cody’s emotive vocals and sweet harmonies, sonically manifest a refreshing homage to classic 60’s femme fatales with chamber pop and baroque textures which transform their Okie roots into the realm of futuristic folk. A native Oklahoman, and part Cherokee, Cody grew up in the backwoods while Desi grew up in the Northwest (Vancouver, WA and Portland, OR). She rediscovered her singing after connecting with Cody—who first heard her talent emanating from the shower. Desi and Cody’s music possesses an inherent irreverence reminiscent of Lynch or Tarantino movies. Songwriting for Cody is a visual expression, “Film usually inspires me most,” he states.“ Their first two EPs, Cody’s “Dog Days Comin’” and Desi’s “In the Dead of Summer,” to positive response. They successfully used Kickstarter to crowdfund their latest album as well as their 2015 full-length debut, “Desi and Cody.” “No Depression” called their self-titled album “superb” while The Tulsa Voice” lauded: “there’s no higher praise an album could receive.” “Yes, This Is Killing Us,” concludes with the multi-layered, alluring pop melody of “Open Your Eyes.” It is a peek into the ups and downs of marriage,” explains Cody, “as well as, at the same time being in a band.” While there may be profound doubts of the journey they have engaged, in the end there is a sweetness that is meant to both comfort and incite: ‘Everything’s turning out right.’”
