Win Tickets: The Naked and Famous @ 40 Watt

New Zealand band The Naked and Famous have about 20 dates left on their current North American tour calendar. This Saturday, March 31st, the group will play 40 Watt Club in Athens, Georgia, and The Silver Tongue wants to send you and a friend to check it out.

About the band:
Everyone knows that the very best music can meddle with your mind, plunging you into the opposite extremes of both happiness and sadness all at once, in intense three minute bursts. It can transport you temporarily to a realm where anything is possible and nothing is out of reach. The latest key holders to that illusive turf are New Zealand’s The Naked And Famous (TNAF).

These five young Aucklanders have at their disposal a seemingly effortless ability to capture the giddy fun and relentless hooks one has come to expect from the very best electro-pop, while at the same time striving for something grander, more brooding and atmospheric. It’s this special proposition that has landed the band triumphant success on their native soil (their single ‘Young Blood’ debuted at number one in the NZ chart, as did the album Passive Me, Aggressive You on its recent release, both on the group’s own Somewhat Damaged label), and has meant that containing their sounds to their homeland has been something of an impossibility.
