The story sounds like one you might see fictionalized for a Netflix teen series. Two young girls visit a music store where a member of a well-known indie band (in this case, Death Cab for Cutie’s Jason McGeer) works when not touring, strikes up a conversation about drums and then starts taking lessons from said musician. The sisters learn how to write songs, record some demos, and play their first show when they are 6 and 8 which leads to journalists discovering the duo and record labels offering record deals.
You may have caught singer/keyboardist Asy and drummer Chloe Saavedra when they were performing under the name SMOOSH at what is now Express Live opening for Bloc Party back in 2007 (by this point, the girls had already released 2 EPs and 2 full lengths). At that time, Asy was 15, Chloe was 13!
In 2012, the Saavedra sisters changed their band name to Chaos Chaos which marked a new music direction (or, evolution if you will). The cute lo-fi indie-pop sound blossomed into ’80s influenced synth-pop. After releasing two EPs (S in 2012, Committed to the Crime in 2014), Chaos Chaos has finally released their first full length and, just as previous work has done, caught the eyes and ears of people like Courtney Love. The songs on the self-titled album have a futuristic nostalgic feel – like Chaos Chaos should be featured in a bar scene in Blade Runner 2049.
