About The Naked and Famous
The Naked and Famous Tickets - Band History
They're not naked, but they are famous. That's the tagline, of sorts, for this New Zealand indie electronic ensemble dubbed The Naked and Famous, who used a line from the song "Tricky Kid" to rebuff the notion that everyone wants to be a celebrity.
While the early origins of The Naked and Famous originally centered on the talents of vocalist Alisa Xayalisth and vocalist/instrumentalist Thom Powers, the band that formed in 2008 would go on to add members to play live shows, including Ben Knapp, Jordan Clark ane Aaron Short. Knapp and Clark later left the group, and Jesse Wood and David Beadle signed on in 2009 to complete the most current lineup.
With two EPs to their name, The Naked and Famous released their debut album, "Passive Me, Aggressive You," in 2010. It spawned the number one single "Young Blood," and the band went on a huge world tour to support the project, playing some 200 dates.
The Naked and Famous collectively relocated to Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles in 2012 to work on their sophomore release. "In Rolling Waves" arrived in September 2013 behind the lead single "Hearts Like Ours." Not only is the band busy promoting its new album, they've become part of pop culture lore, with their songs appearing in shows like "The Vampire Diaries," "Gossip Girl," "Grey's Anatomy," "True Blood," "Covert Affairs," "Chuck," "Property Brothers," "Elementary" and more. Additionally, they've also had cuts featured in movies like "Dallas Buyers Club" and in the horror flick "Carrie."
