The Naked and Famous
The Naked and Famous’ debut album, Passive Me, Aggressive You, snagged a top spot on the album charts in their native New Zealand in 2010. After a mass tour and a single ("Young Blood") that gained them a global following, the indie-electro-pop group released a much-anticipated second album, In Rolling Waves, last month. Though the band's sound is similar to groups such as MGMT and M83, the addition of singer Alisa Xayalith's '80s-influenced vocals moves N&F to the top of our playlist. Fri 7 p.m.
