LA-based duo Chaos Chaos is made up of sisters Asy and Chloe Saavedra. Growing up, Asy and Chloe picked up instruments and songwriting at ages 8 and 10, formed the band Smoosh and by age 14 and 16, released three critically acclaimed albums.

In 2013, Asy and Chloe formed Chaos Chaos. The sisters have composed music for Rick and Morty and released their debut self titled LP "a surreal dive into themes like sisterhood, estrangement and growing older" - Noisey.

Carroll’s first ever performance was Brian Hurlow, alone, smashing his feet on a broken keyboard to trigger samples. Little did he know, ambient guitar sorcerer Max Kulicke and iconic drummer Charlie Rudoy were watching from afar. They joined and took the seeds of Brian’s sadness and grew them into jungles. It was only a matter of time until Charles McClung arrived and with a wave of his wand completed the Carroll lineup with tightrope bass lines and glass synths. Carroll put out their first release, the Needs E.P., to a buzzing and excited audience. After months of deep touring the scattered parts of a followup full length album were arranged neatly on the floor of their Minneapolis home. They took a hazy snapshot of the dismembered songs and sent them to renowned engineer Jon Low (The National, The War on Drugs, Mr. Twin Sister). Jon was game and so the band shipped out to Philly to record their eponymous Carroll (Eone, 2015) in a headrush of 18 days. They toured and kept touring until they found themselves in Philly again, this time to stay. Now, glowing stronger with each passing moon, Carroll released their second LP As Far As Gardens Go (Shattered Orb) in November of 2016. Recorded by the band in a series of isolated beach cabins in the northeast, and mixed again by Low, Carroll’s second record tells a story of being adrift, of orbiting in and out of the lives of others. With heavy emphasis on synth syrup and dense, classic arrangements, Carroll’s 2016 follow up pulls the listener into a blissful, sometimes chaotic futuristic world.
