Chiia is the cinematic disco project of transplants Susan Carnell (London UK) and Jason Chimonides (TLH).
Formed in New York City by Anglo-Chinese research scientist Susan and Greek-Cypriot/American theater professor Jason, Chiia moved to Charm City in 2013, where they’ve been cultivating their genre-melding electro-lounge sound.
While at Mobtown Studios, they fused melodic hooks inspired by British post-punk and 90s lo-fi with the sonic palates of dreampop, garage-pop, synth-pop and trip hop – all undergirding Susan’s subtle pop vocals and honest lyrical approach.
Chiia sessions are creative and unpredictable, with Susan and Jason multi-tracking live vocals, guitars, keys and drums, and working with production guru Mat Leffler-Schulman to crystallize their sound and add technological special sauce.
