Marc, a talented player of many instruments and former singer of the French band Megasushi (Paris 2006-1012) met Lapo, an Italian-London based producer and bass player (Frost, Fanny Games), in 2012. They established the core of tribal-tropical-indie-dance outfit N-A-I-V-E-S in East-London. Josh Gimber (Sons & Lovers, Alpines, Ellie Goulding) joined the band in 2014 as a session drummer.
N-A-I-V-E-S mix hook laden synths with big beat drums, to create charming electro pop bites, as fresh as they are unique. Their first single WIGO was released in February and the video hit 150.000 views. They supported Friendly Fires, Is Tropical, Reptile Youth, Goldie, Tessla Boy, Hot Sugar, Slow Magic, We Have Band, Mystery Jets and played a few crowded headline shows in Europe (Rome, Barcelona, Paris).
Gary Crowley played several tracks of the band in his show BBC London 94.9, they did a session for Radio Reprezent and they won an Auditions with Charlie Ashcroft on Amazing Radio.
Here’s an exclusive look at the new video for Horizon which premiered on Vevo yesterday.
