Born in Seattle at the height of the grunge era, Los Angeles-based duo Chaos Chaos is made up of sisters Asy and Chloe Saavedra. Growing up, Asy and Chloe were heavily inspired by genre-defying and outspoken musicians like Björk and PJ Harvey and picked up instruments and songwriting at ages 8 and 10. They formed the band Smoosh, and by age 15 released three critically acclaimed albums, toured and performed with the likes of Bloc Party, Sleater-Kinney, Cat Power and Death Cab for Cutie, and performed at Lollapalooza and on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! In 2012, Asy and Chloe formed Chaos Chaos. The sisters have composed music for TV shows including Rick and Morty, and Lucifer, released the single "Terryfold" in collaboration with Justin Roiland, co-creator of Rick and Morty, and released their first single "Dripping with Fire", which Noisey called "a surreal dive into themes like sisterhood, estrangement and growing older". Both "Dripping with Fire" and new single "Pink Politics" will be on their self-titled debut LP to be released on May 15, 2018.
Asy and Chloe are at ages where most begin their careers, but have been performing and releasing music for 15 years. Chloe and Asy are avid musicians (Chloe is a contributor to Tom Tom Magazine, has been featured in Modern Drummer, is endorsed by Paiste, and has guest drummed on Late Night With Seth Meyers, while Asy was a featured vocalist in "Stuart Murdoch" of Belle and Sebastian's God Help the Girl album and has done analog synth-based scoring for unannounced video games and TV shows). The two use their music as a vessel for activism, teaming up with a Brooklyn prison to bring their live show to inmates. "As a female musician and someone who cares deeply about equality, I feel it's my responsibility to consider whatever voice I have. I'm not afraid to destruct walls I believe to be unjust. I love music because it provides a platform for this but also because it makes us aware of both something temporary and something eternal in us. Songs provide a meeting point of these two things in a way I've been in love with for as long as I can remember." —Asy Saavedra
"Samson gear enables us to rehearse, write and record all in our own studio space, which is awesome!"
"We rehearse using the Samson PA system and mixing board because it gives us a super clean live sound that we need for tour prep."
