Pop twisted music
retro-psychedelic melodic and alt pop

CHIWAWA?s sound brings together a luscious soundscape, topped by singer Laurie Gordon?s distinctive voice. Their genre is melodic alternative pop, blended with just the right touch of electronica.

With their music being compared to such classic bands and artists as Depeche Mode, Garbage, The Cure, Siouxsie and the Banshees, their united efforts as songwriters and producers are being noticed. Their work has been described as ?uncommon alternative pop tunes.? Think of CHIWAWA as a modern day Sonny and Cher, reborn in the essence of today?s manic, yet romantic tendencies.

Formed in 1994, CHIWAWA is Laurie and Krassy Halathev; Laurie the daughter of Hungarian immigrants and Krassy born and raised in Bulgaria. What started out as a ?greencard marriage? blossomed into true love and they settled into the sub-European culture of Montreal, Canada.

In 2002, CHIWAWA charted on college radio across Canada and were played regularly on CBC radio. The band has been featured in the CHOM L?Esprit Contest and included in a compilation distributed by Universal Canada. Their debut album, ?The Sick World Of Yona? (1998), immediately caught the attention of journalists, dj?s and vj?s across the country.

*CHIWAWA is also available for Film and Television composing and producing. They maintain their own full service-recording studio, Satellite Records in Montreal, Canada.
