Have You Ever Woke Yourself Punching in a Dream?!


The Naked and Famous is an electro/80's indie rock band from Auckland, New Zealand. The band members are Thom Powers, Alisa Xayalith, Aaron Short, David Beadle and Jesse Wood. According to the band, they chose their band name from a line of the song Tricky Kid, by UK trip hop singer Tricky. The band released their debut album, Passive Me, Aggressive You, in September 2010. The first single "Young Blood" hit number one on the New Zealand charts - the first New Zealand artist to do so in three years. Vocalist Alisa Xayalith said they weren't expecting all this success. "Things have happened so much faster than we anticipated and it's just been a crazy year. We always knew Young Blood- would be our first single but we never dreamed about the opportunities it has opened up for us". The single "Punching in a Dream" managed to also hit #11 on New Zealand charts. Alisa Xayalith had this to say when asked about what bands have inspired TNAF: "there's something to appreciate in every single genre" she says naming inspirations including Tool, Nine Inch Nails, TV on The Radio, Bjork and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs..

I can't say enough about these guys, if you are into indie rock, I promise you will love them!!!
