Auckland's The Naked And Famous are named after a line from a Tricky song, and based around the ferociously talented pairing of composer/control freak Thom Powers and vocal siren/lyricist Alisa Xayalith, though they operate as a four piece live.
Typically untypical they have worked in reverse, recording their gobsmacking debut demo, before being approached by the notoriously picky Round Trip Mars label, and subsequently taken on by Encore Management.
To conclude the reversal procedure, they then enlisted appropriate band members to complete the line-up, and have seconded themselves in the practice room to ensure that their live show can truly do justice to what will undoubtedly be one of the 2008's most exciting releases and freshest debuts.
Now primed and ready for gigging action, and with the track Serenade already causing much wow and flutter by debuting at an astonishing #1 (and sticking there for 3 weeks) on the Radioscope National Alternative Chart as well as troubling listener top tens from Dunedin to Auckland, The Naked And Famous are stepping out, you have been warned.
