Jenny Lewis has formed a new band called NAF, featuring Revoir Simone’s Erika Forster and The Like’s Tennessee Thomas.
Standing for ‘Nice As F*ck’ the band debuted last night (April 4) at a rally for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. The evening saw performances from Wild Belle, Chappo, So So Glows, and more.
According to Brooklyn Vegan, NAF will be heading out on tour to support M. Ward later on this month, with dates in Washington, Philadelphia and more.
Forster and Thomas formed another supergroup back in early 2015, teaming up with Strokes bassist Nikolai Fraiture and New York-based musician Lewis Lazar to form Summer Moon.
In 2014, Lewis released her latest album ‘The Voyager,’ with Au Revoir Simone releasing ‘Move in Spectrums’ in 2013. The Like’s last album was 2010’s ‘Release Me.’
A range of artists have recently shown their support for Bernie Sanders, with Best Coast and Bon Iver among them.
