Alisa Xayalith Performs Acoustic Version Of ‘Last Forever’

The Naked And Famous’ frontwoman Alisa Xayalith recently teamed up with Fender to deliver an acoustic performance of the band’s song ‘Last Forever’.

Sitting in a home studio playing acoustic guitar, Xayalith belted out a stripped-back version of the song, showcasing her effortless pipes and the emotion behind the usually synth-laden song.

The original, off the band’s last album ‘Simple Forms’ is a bombastic breakup track that merged processed guitars with electronic drum samples and layered vocals. It’s great to hear ‘Last Forever’ in a way that cuts straight to the emotion.

Xayalith explained in a follow-up video that she usually starts writing her songs on acoustic guitar, saying, “It’s a form of therapy, it’s a form of creative catharsis, of creating something out of nothing.”
