The Naked and Famous


Originally hailing from Auckland, New Zealand, and now calling Los Angeles home, The Naked and Famous have carved a fiercely autonomous path and delivered an album that showcases their finely polished, self-produced sound. "Simple Forms," an October 2016 release, was conceived in the Echo Park home studio of guitarist/vocalist/producer Thom Powers at a point where the band had come close to tearing apart under the strain of the breakdown of the eight-year romance between him and co-vocalist Alisa Xayalith.
