Formed in New Zealand, in various Auckland bedrooms byDavid Beadle, Thom Powers, Aaron Short, Jesse Wood and Alisa Xayalith, The Naked & Famous took the DIY approach, writing and recording the majority of their music in those very same suburban houses. Its loving, careworn aesthetic was preserved as the tracks were mixed and mastered in the US before release.
The band picked up the Philip Hall Radar Award at the Shockwaves NME Awards in February as well as a place on the BBC Sound of 2011 longlist.
Their album Passive Me Aggressive You (Fiction) has received rave reviews as have their recent sell-out shows around the country.
