"Theaters" by Chaos Chaos

Sisters Asya and Chloe Saavedra, formerly of Smoosh, grew up living in Seattle, Sweden and New York before moving to LA to record, engineer and produce their music. Performing with the likes of Pearl Jam, Death Cab For Cutie, Nada Surf, Cat Power, and Sleater Kinney, they have been releasing albums together for 15 years, as well as landing coveted sync spots on Rick And Morty and Lucifer for their carefully curated melodies.

Following the release of their eponymous LP, LA duo Chaos Chaos have released “Theaters”. Opening with a stuttering drum pattern, the single builds into a frenzied rhythm saturated with discordant melodies and sharp synthesisers. Self-penned ‘musical chameleons’, Asya’s euphoric vocals sweep the musical canvas in meticulous strokes, constructing a sound which is just as tender as it is emotionally raw.

“‘Theaters’ was inspired by the intro to ‘Permanent Vacation’ by Jim Jarmusch. It’s about the inner and outer world and how people navigate it” the duo explain. “We can go through the motions of life, projecting everything from past experiences onto every new place we go. Every alleyway we walk through, every room we enter or every person we meet can be seen as a projection of our inner world. The song is about thinking of the world as a theater that plays out our own inner dramas.”
