The group “Fun” recently became the first rock/alternative band to have a #1 hit in the U.S. since Coldplay, almost 4 years ago. Their song “We Are Young” (featuring Janelle Monae) has also been used in four TV shows and countless other ad campaigns (and a Super Bowl commercial). Their second album, “Some Nights” has met with such critical acclaim that they’ve been invited to play for the Bonnaroo 2012 Festival in June.
The band (and there have been lots of different touring members) is based in New York; having formed from the remnants of several other indie bands. Reviews say that the band must be seen live to truly appreciate their musical talents and songwriting ability.
