Great indie dance. A bit of Spoon (also great). Great synth riffs. Very, very promising. And great.

Chaos chaos - My hand

Asy and Cloe are Chaos Chaos. Cloe: we're sick of listening to albums where every song sounds similar. We believe songs should each be their own entity, so we treated the songs like people, each with different personalities, and tried to make each song as extreme as it could be. It was a huge challenge to fully embody the mood and atmosphere of every song, but it was our goal to test ourselves by putting ourselves in an uncomfortable place.

It is working!
