About fun [Courtesy of Fueled by Ramen]:

fun. began in 2008 when Nate Ruess teamed up with Andrew Dost and Jack Antonoff to meld an array of diverse inspirations into their own irresistible and freewheeling pop songcraft. The band drew immediate attention for their contemporary rethinking of classic ’70s pop, where ornate arrangements and inspired orchestrations meet present-day rock ‘n’ roll. Fit to burst with richly prolix lyricism and intricate melodic twists and turns, “AIM AND IGNITE” earned copious critical praise: Paste praised their “bubbly, pop-synth songs,” while The Huffington Post noted that “(fun. has) been quite on a roll since the release of their well-received debut.”

The band followed the album’s release with a series of well-received live appearances, including numerous headline dates and show-stopping performances at such gatherings as 2011’s Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival.
