    Default the NAKED and FAMOUS for 2011! dancey new zealand goodness

    i've been exploring aussie/NZ music a lot recently and i think this group would be fun to watch.

    very danceable and melodic, offering simple drum patterns & synths, but (and this is important) without attracting a significant douche contingent. their lyrics are also more thoughtful than most dance/pop bands i'm aware of.

    here is dekade's remix of their song 'young blood'



    here's another single



    and another for good measure




    don't know if they've got enough of a following for next year, but i'll be keeping my fingers crossed.

    Just listening to this band for the first time. Fucking love it.

    Weird, Dreamy, Industrial, Pretty, Spacey, Glam, Pop... Yeah, it's true. Only way to explain it.

    I've been exploring a lot of "aussie/NZ" bands, and I am now going to tell you all about the particular aussie/NZ band that has been getting recent attention on American blogs.

    yes yes yes. love them. I couldn't get "all of this" out of my head for days -- would be a great set opener. love "girls like you" too.

    seen them live and worked with them a handful of times, they're such nice people, i'll find out if they are booked or not, the lead girl is good friends with one of my friends.

    They're signed to the Windish Agency for bookings in the US so have a good possibility of happening at Coachella...

    well with the booking agency being The Windish Agency in the US and their booking agent being Tom Windish himself, very probable chance. Will be right up there at the front, so proud of these guys.
