Fun. (band)

  • Some Nights, fun.'s latest album, is a worldwide left-field success, and "We Are Young" became one of 2012's signature anthems. Hear an archived performance and interview with WXPN, recorded during the group's ride to the top of the charts.
  • Producer and songwriter Jeff Bhasker has worked with Kanye West and Beyonce, and is up for four Grammy Awards, including producer of the year for his work on the album Some Nights by the band fun. Now, he says he's looking for a solo career.
  • With a wide variety of styles and critical favorites represented, there's plenty about the recent Grammy nominations to feel good about. Once the awards themselves arrive in February, there are a number of ways they could disappoint us.
  • We've been following the band on a growth spurt as it crosses the country, and a couple of oceans.
  • Another stop on our summer tour with the band fun. This week, we check in with lighting director Jackie Finney in Los Angeles, where she's setting up a powerful new lighting system that's possibly a metaphor for the band's growing success.
  • Guitar technician Shane Timm is one of the many people who make the band fun.'s tour possible. Timm is in charge of the 45 pieces of musical equipment that travel with the band on its summer tour.
  • For the summer season, we'll follow the rising band behind the hit "We Are Young" — and its backstage crew — as it hits the road.
