Note: For as-yet-unspecified reasons, The Naked and Famous have cancelled their upcoming Japan shows
One of the most impressive debuts at Fuji Rock 2011 was from this fresh-faced quintet, already megastars in their native New Zealand. The Naked and Famous have drawn comparisons with acts like The XX and MGMT, but they're equally apt to recall the more anthemic moments of Depeche Mode or the industrial thump of Nine Inch Nails. Don't expect them to stay on the indie circuit for long, in other words. The group's first Japan tour features support from Japanese electro rockers Sawagi.
