Since 2002 Xiu Xiu have tried to make music for people opposed to and opposed by the horror and disquiet of life.

They have been called “self flagellating,” “harsh,” “brutal,” “shocking,” and “perverse;” but also “genius,” “brilliant,” “unique,” “imaginative,” and “luminous.”

Xiu Xiu draws upon musical traditions of British post punk, 20th century classical, industrial noise, experimental and traditional percussion musics, 50s rock and roll, field recordings, queer dance pop and kosmische musik. Xiu Xiu has toured relentlessly all over the world. They have shared stages with Sun Ra Arkestra, Zola Jesus, Deerhoof, Liars, Swans, Matmos, Faust, Grouper, Genesis P Orridge, Angelo Badalamenti and thousands, perhaps billions, of other unstoppable musical fairies, dignitaries and saints. 

For the past decade they have been more productive than ever. Xiu Xiu released 8 studio albums of original music, collaborated with Merzbow, Eugene Robinson, Alice Bag, Sharon Van Etten, Vaginal Davis, Drab Majesty, Haitian master drummer Daniel Brevil and Lawrence English, and recorded reinterpretations of the music of Nina Simone (NINA), American religious songs (Unclouded Sky), Mozart’s The Magic Flute, and the music of Twin Peaks (Plays The Music of Twin Peaks.) They have created museum installations for the Berlin and Venice biennales, LACMA, The Guggenheim, the Getty Museum and The Kitchen.

Both band members, Angela Seo and Jamie Stewart are also independently involved in their solo recordings, music subscriptions and literary and film pursuits. Xiu Xiu regularly contributes music and performance with the Berlin based art collective CHEAP. 

In 2021 the band released their 12th record OH NO, an album of duets. They are currently at work on their 13th album.
