You Can Still See the Naked and Famous Play Terminal 5 TomorrowOctober 10th, 2013
Melodic electronic outfit the Naked and Famous got started in Auckland, New Zealand when Alisa Xayalith (vocals) and Thom Powers (guitar and vocals) recorded EPs with Aaron Short (keys) in 2008. David Beadle (bass) and Jesse Wood (drums) became fulltime members the following year. And thanks to their debut full-length, 2011’s Passive Me, Aggressive You—which earned them comparisons to MGMT—the five-piece toured the world, winning over fans across the globe with their dazzling live shows. Afterward, the Naked and Famous (above, performing “Hearts Like Ours” on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson) settled into Los Angeles’s musical-hotbed neighborhood Laurel Canyon to begin working on their sophomore effort. The moodier but no less fun In Rolling Waves (stream it below) arrived about a month ago, prompting the quintet to again hit the road. The bad news is that you can’t see them tonight at Terminal 5 unless you already have tickets. But the good news is that some tickets still remain for tomorrow night.
