Smoosh with Tobias Fröberg and Peter Morén

Smoosh are a two piece band from Seattle, Washington previously signed to Pattern 25, now signed to Barsuk Records; which is home to such acts as Death Cab for Cutie, Mates of State, They Might Be Giants and Rilo Kiley.

They’re made up of 15-year-old Asya (keyboards and vocals) and 13-year-old Chloe (drums and backing vocals). Asya and Chloe were 12 and 10, respectively, when their first album, ‘She Like Electric,’ was released in September of 2004. Recently, younger sister Maia has joined the band on tour to play bass guitar on some songs.

The duo generated buzz through their connection with Jason McGerr (Chloe’s drum teacher) of Death Cab for Cutie and also through the support of other indie royalty, like Cat Power and Sleater-Kinney.

Their two albums ‘She Like Electric’ and ‘Free To Stay’ have achieved high critical acclaim.

Smoosh toured internationally in 2006 supporting The Eels and in America in 2007 with Bloc Party. They are currently working on songs for their third album.
