Album Review

The whole swirl of attention Smoosh got out of the gate due to the performers' age was understandable, but so was the reason why people were listening to start with. She Like Electric is great, brawling, fun, rock pop without obvious rock signifiers via guitars. The duo of Asya and Chloe only needed vocals, keyboards, and drums to whip out one engaging, enjoyably brisk song after another, kicking off with the stutter drum groove of "Massive Cure" and not holding back. Asya's voice tries on both a to-the-fore style and a softer croon here and there, but on "Take It Away," the latter interpretation works incredibly well, understated but full and fun like the music. The music, meanwhile, constantly varies its ideas of what a verse-chorus structure could be like, although not completely reinventing the conventional pop form. Chloe's drumming throws in all kinds of unexpected touches per song: "It's Cold" is a miniature showcase for cymbal accents alone. The great bass keyboard growl and hook kicking off "La Pump" is another wonderful moment, while the minute-long "The Quack," meanwhile, could be something out of 1981's no wave. "It's Not Your Day to Shine"'s happily forthright hip-hop-meets-new-wave adds to the standouts throughout, something that puts everything together into something fun, a little rough around the edges, and sounding like nothing but itself. But "Bottlenose" could be even sharper, thanks to a creepy bass/synth zone and shout/MCing that could almost be Le Tigre.

Customer Reviews

It's okayyy...

Rad? How about NOT. Massive Cure? Hello - you killed me with this. Bottlenose? Put your whole BODY into the bottle, and PLEASE say it's sound insulated. The only problem is, the beat is SO catchy, and Aysa's voice gets stuck in your head so easily that you can't stop thinking about the songs. Please, you're a really good band, just FOCUS ON YOUR LYRICS!

Not Bad

Well, considering they were 12 and 10 when they made this, and it's considerably better than a lot of music I hear nowadays, I'd say it's a good album. I remember hearing on of their songs on the radio a while ago, and it just kind of stuck with me until I eventually decided to check out more of their music. Definitely worth my time.

Biography

Formed: 2002 in Seattle, WA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s

Tween indie rock duo Smoosh formed in Seattle in 2002. At the time, eight-year-old Chloe (last name withheld) was a student at the Seattle Drum School whose instructor Jason McGerr (later the drummer in Death Cab for Cutie) suggested she begin collaborating with other fledgling musicians to better understand the role of percussion in rock music. Chloe simply went home and began playing with her ten-year-old sister Asya, who despite quitting piano lessons was now writing her own clever, buoyant songs...
