I just realized that the band "Chaos Chaos" who played Bowery Ballroom with Tegan & Sara, and who will be at SXSW this year, are the band previously known as Smoosh.

3:55 for the win.

3:55 might be called shit now, but always sounded like it

RAD!

I'd Smoosh them together and make a hipster sandwich.

Thanks for that clarification. We were all really confused!

Are these the white supremacist girls?

They were being sued by the Shropshire brothers.

Is this the little 12 year old keys/drum pop duo girls all grown up?

"Are these the white supremacist girls?"

was literally wondering the same thing before clicking on this article.

This feels like the end of one era and the beginning of another. Scary and exciting, and now what? Well, I may never be up on the Terminal 5 stage again. Or the Glasslands stage, for that matter. Change, you gotta love it.

We will continue to write twee indie songs, to move people to nausea by being moved by our P.R. wench: the greatest job in the world. It's just that from now on, we may be holding a different guitar pick. And maybe it won't be as sparkly. Maybe it won't play to three thousand gay cokeheads. Maybe it will be so quiet and delicate that only dogs abandoned at 285 Kent can hear it whistle. But it will be our writing on the wall: Smoosh was here, we still are, and we want to be seen, to be understood, deeply, and to be not so very lonely when the hype machine moves on and we work the night shift at Home Depot. Thank you, all of you, for the company. Here's to the next fifty disposable indie products.

5:39 - If you are actually the band formally known as Smoosh, you have just earned my respect for having a modicum of self-awareness (in such short supply in the indie-hype world) and I may even go listen to one of your songs one of these days.

Its unfortunate that the low lifes have to leave dispicable comments about a band they have never listened to or people they dont even know because theyre own lives are so pathetic. These people have probably never played on stage or have a sliver of the talent or success these girls have had, Chaos Chaos is my favorite band and they produce great music, as for the comments on here it is either due to jealousy or room temperature IQ or both, Rock on Chaos Chaos and ignore the ignorant haters!

I agree with every single one of the above comments. My name is Optimus Prime.

Well said and nice reference. Too many damn mediocre "bands" out there.

Smoosh/Chaos Chaos is NOT to be confused with Prussian Blue, the white nazi folk duo. We are from Seattle, not Germany!

Saw these girls play in Seattle on stage with another gay cokehead and a dancing Panda. Very gimmicky, but loved it. They are known as Daydream Vacation when accompanied on stage by the gay cokehead. Sweet and fruity, just how I like it!

I think it's a better name.

To see how they have evolved musically is to see creativity personified. AND how 2 plain little girls can turn out to be 2 hot babes, which is totally irrelevant,btw.
