Chaos Chaos, the new project of Asy and Chloe formerly of the band Smoosh released their new EP, S this fall to critical acclaim. S received praise from Nylon, Bust, IFC, Interview Magazine, Lucky Magazine, Magnet and more. The duo has been hard at work writing songs for their upcoming full-length debut out this fall. In anticipation of the forthcoming album, Chaos Chaos has released the first single “In This Place.” You can stream the track at Interview Magazine and watch the brand new video at Teen Vogue. Asy says, “‘In This Place” is our own version of a story that has been told many times about the battle between emotional and mechanical. The instrumentation in the song produces a conflict by combining raw, human instruments (vocals and cello) and industrial mechanical sounds (aluminum, metal and a drill). Influences of ours were; The Iron Giant, Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz, the theatrical sound effects in the Iron Man movie and The Stranger by Albert Camus.”

 

Asy and Chloe put out three full-length albums. Their debut She Like Electric was released in 2004 when Asy was 12 years old and Chloe was only 10. Over the years the band toured with Pearl Jam, Death Cab For Cutie, Sleater-Kinney, Mates Of State, Jimmy Eat World, Cat Power, Nada Surf, The Eels and Sufjan Stevens, among others. 

 

In 2012, two decided it was time for a change and formed Chaos Chaos. The duo recorded songs on S with producer Nathan Rosenberg at The Doghouse Studios in Brooklyn, except for the track “Winner,” which was recorded with Matt Tong of Bloc Party. There are dance, blues and electronic elements on the EP and the songs blend electronic instruments with acoustic piano, drums, a trash drum kit, saxophone, and experimental vocals. The duo launched a Kickstarter project to fund the EP, featuring the trash drum kit used on the EP as well as artwork created by the band. The project succeeded its goal within the first day.

 

Chaos Chaos will be touring in support of S this spring. The band will play several shows at the SXSW Music Festival before hitting the road with San Cisco. Chloe says, “The whole process feels like an adventure. It will also be very exciting to bring this EP to a live setting (which will involve the Toys R Us Big Piano, a trash drum kit and vocal processors).”
