New Zealand electro-pop band The Naked And Famous celebrated the NZ release of their spectacular debut full length "Passive Me, Aggressive You" (Somewhat Damaged) on September 6, and are planning a AUS release on October 1. The album was mastered at The Lodge by Chief Mastering Engineer Emily Lazar and Mastering Engineer Joe LaPorta.
Hailing from Auckland, New Zealand, The Naked And Famous offer an bold new twist on modern pop/rock. Since their formation in 2006, the five-piece outfit consisting of lead singer Alisa Xayalith, producer/composer Thom Powers, producer/engineer Aaron Short, drummer Jordan Clark, and bassist Ben Knapp, have garnered quite a bit of attention among critics and music lovers alike. The band's anthemic single "Young Blood" debuted at #1 on New Zealand's Top 40 charts earlier this summer, and is just one of many gems that make up their highly anticipated upcoming full length. Mixed entirely by frequent Lodge client Billy Bush, (Against Me!, Garbage), "Passive Me, Aggressive You" is sure to launch The Naked And Famous even further into international stardom.
In support of the new album, "Passive Me, Aggressive You," The Naked And Famous have a string of shows lined up in Australia/New Zealand. If you live in the US, keep an eye out for tour updates because they put on a show you do not want to miss out on!
