Green Party

Being young and raw hasn't stopped dios from writing great pop songs

Which may explain dios' surprising success in a relatively short period of time, the band's greenness as performers notwithstanding. Just four months removed from the release of its first EP (and two months since dios dropped), the band has already toured with the likes of Grandaddy, Saves the Day, the Shins, and, starting this week, Beulah. They played Coachella earlier this month, and in late April, none other than Morrissey declared himself a fan, tapping them to open one of his L.A. shows.

But Caballero remains philosophical. "You know, you can get a million write-ups, and you can get to play with whoever," he says, "but ultimately the real litmus test is if people are really into your record like a year, or two years, or five years, or 10 years after it comes out. That for us is kind of the most important thing."
