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.
The Naked And Famous first debuted in the IMNZ Independent Album Chart on 1 June 2008 with the album This Machine EP. There are nine entries by The Naked And Famous in the charts with four reaching Number One.
