History[edit]

Irons was born and raised in Tacoma, while Harris-White was born and raised in Hawaii and Seattle.[1] The duo met in 2008 while attending the University of Washington. Irons, the rapper of the duo, frequented Harris-White's open mic performances. Irons recalls, "I was attracted to Cat's voice, I would go to the open mic and close my eyes and zone out whenever she sang. I finally had the courage to speak to her… it took a while."[2]

In 2011, Sub Pop Records signed the duo after hearing their guest track on Shabazz Palaces' 2011 album Black Up.[3]

The duo released their debut full-length album, Awe Naturale, on Sub Pop Records March 27, 2012.[4] They released their second and final album, Earthee, on February 24, 2015.

THEESatisfaction announced in May 2016 that they had decided to "end the group" to "rest, reflect & grow independently."[5]
