Fun. has been wasting my time. Fun with a period – the indie rock band from New York City. Putting their debut album out in 2009, Fun. had a cult following until Glee launched them into stardom: In December of last year Glee covered Fun.’s first release, “We Are Young.” The song is quite catchy, and you should check out Fun.’s performance of it on the Colbert Report a couple of days ago: Bouncy, awkward, and operatic come to mind, all in a good way.
They’ve been described as “Squeaky Clean,” and on their interview with the Today Show they came across as articulate, thoughtful, and quite geeky. I’m digging their stuff, especially the title song of their new album, Some Nights. Here is their performance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. I love the line “The most amazing things come from terrible lies.” It hits home.
So yeah. Fun. That’s what has been wasting my time….
