New Zealand-born LA-based electro pop five-piece, THE NAKED AND FAMOUS, return to Australia for two headline shows in January 2017. Celebrating the release of their long awaited third album, Simple Forms, the band will play club shows in Sydney and Melbourne.
These are the band’s first Australian shows since 2014 of which both Sydney and Melbourne sold out.
The band first came to mainstream fame in 2010 with their hits “Young Blood” and “Punching in a Dream” – both Triple J Hottest 100 singles – lifted from their debut album, Passive Me, Aggressive You. Their latest single “Higher” is currently on high rotation on Triple J and highlights their ability to pull euphoric electronic pop from the shadows is still undiminished.
The Naked and Famous are nineties kids; invigorated by the era’s golden age of alternative-rock, their sound is fully loaded electro rock, sharing a lineage to the synth-heavy bands of their peers, MGMT and Passion Pit. Their latest album, Simple Forms, still features the razor synths with skyscraper vocals and continues to showcase their finely polished, self-produced sound.
“My production idea in The Naked and Famous has always been to set the insularity of our songwriting in a space where intimacy and explosive excitement can bring tension and release… To me, that is what contemporary pop should be. Our ambition is that this music be noticed and we’re proud of what we’ve achieved in the studio.” Tom Powers – guitarist/vocalist/producer
