To Stream: Artist Coco Gordon Moore’s Songs for When You Miss Someone


“My mother didn’t really influence my musical taste…but she had a huge influence over what I know about it,” says Coco (daughter of rock legend Kim Gordon)—and that makes us love her playlist all the more.

When Coco Gordon Moore moved from her hometown of New York City to Chicago for art school, one of the biggest adjustments she faced was being away from her friends and family, including her mother, Kim Gordon. That’s just one reason we couldn’t wait to bring Coco and Kim together in NYC to photograph them in our limited-edition collaboration with iconic designer Daryl Kerrigan, a longtime friend of Kim’s. (Kim was a big fan of Daryl’s original designs in the ’90s.) As the shoot wrapped up and the two headed to different cities (Coco to Chicago and Kim to Los Angeles), we asked Coco to share the music she plays when she misses her pals and mom. “It may sound corny,” she says, “but these songs help.”
