Smoosh are two sisters from Seattle who are ten and twelve years old. Their names are Asya and Chloe. Their album was The Village Voice's #1 most overlooked record of 2004.

When the members of Smoosh were told they could be bigger than Led Zeppelin, they said: 'Is that big?' http://www.guardian.co.uk/arts/features/story/0,11710,1636684,00.html

She Like Electric is no sickly novelty. Instead, it's a collection of sparse, exhilaratingly skewed pop songs, powered by Asya's high, slurred vocals, untutored electric-piano playing and her sister's booming drums. You occasionally catch the hint of an influence - a snatch of Tori Amos on the exquisitely melancholy It's Cold, a trace of hip-hop on Rad and the frantic Bottlenose - but most of it sounds like nothing else. http://www.guardian.co.uk/arts/features/story/0,11710,1636684,00.html

Smoosh is a Seattle-based band that has been opening for Pearl Jam, Sleater-Kinney and Death Cab for Cutie. Now they're promoting their first album, She Like Electric, but they try not to let the hectic schedule interrupt their day jobs - as elementary and junior high students. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=4167837
