The Naked & Famous on AT&T's AUDIENCE Music

The Naked and Famous emerged from New Zealand with the 2011 alternative hit single “Young Blood,” a platinum-million seller in the U.S., and certified platinum in Australia, NZ, Germany as well as other countries. Their ambitious debut album Passive Me, Aggressive You followed, featuring “Young Blood” and “Punching In A Dream.” Lauded by the NME as “A classic case of lovely and beautiful: TNAF’s passive melodicism and aggressive innovation clash in a dazzling blaze of psych/sonic fireworks” and Rolling Stone magazine described “Young Blood” as one of the year’s “best singles.”

Fronted by Alisa Xayalith and Thom Powers, The Naked and Famous lit a fire under an online fan base, with a video subculture built through YouTube and on to festival appearances around the world. The group has gone on to release two more critically acclaimed studio albums including Simple Forms (2016). On their return to their Los Angeles home from touring for Simple Forms, Xayalith and Powers set about recording new versions of the group’s classic songs for their latest project entitled A Still Heart, a collection of acoustic interpretations of hits and favorite tracks recorded over their career. 

The Naked and Famous spent 2018 wowing crowds across America and Europe with a series of sold-out and stripped-down live performances in support of A Still Heart. These performances and recordings gave fans a chance to feel the heart of TNAF’s songwriting and performance prowess as they reimagine the heavy electronic rock production that has made them a concert and festival favorite around the world.
