Lollapalooza Spotlight: Fun.
Behind the success of their hit single “We Are Young” (ft. Janelle Monae), NYC based indie pop band Fun. has taken 2012 by storm. The group, composed of Nate Russ, Andrew Dost and Jack Antonoff, formed in 2008 (following the break up of Russ’ former band The Format) and immediately began capturing the hearts of pop music enthusiasts with the release of their first album Aim and Ignite. After spending the next few months touring with the likes of Jack’s Mannequin, Paramore, Relient K and Panic! At The Disco, Fun. signed with label Fueled by Ramen. Fun.’s second album, Some Nights, proved to be the one that would launch the band into stardom, reaching number one best selling album slot on both Billboard’s rock and alternative charts. If you haven’t gotten the chance check out the wonderful sounds of Fun. yet, check out the music video for their hit song “We Are Young” below as well as as full stream of Some Nights.
