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.
Passive Me, Agressive You debuted in the Official New Zealand Top 40 Albums on 13 September 2010. It has been in the Top 40 Albums for four weeks with a highest position of #1. There are three albums by The Naked And Famous in the Top 40 Albums with one reaching Number One.
