Punchy dream-pop from Auckland + California
Aside from having a name that would absolutely kill it in Scrabble, Alisa Xayalith’s sexy coos have helped soften the thumping power chords of Auckland’s The Naked And Famous. The quintet topped charts back home with their textured machine pop and now they’re bringing it stateside, where they’ll be joined by The Colourist. As if this lineup wasn't sweet enough, we’re footing the bill for this dance party. Thursday night couldn’t get any better if it tried. General admission.
"They write strapping, festival-fit tunes, yet toy with template-stretching textures."
