Originating at the beloved house show venue Mattress Fort and boasting a minimal two-piece sound, Naked Naps have exemplified the DIY rock scene in the Triangle for years. And they’re coming to Double Barrel hot off of their second full-length record. The duo have a unique talent for creating songs that feel sincerely emotional while simultaneously detached and cynical. Their music is bursting with energy but is also subtle and understated. The strong following their fantastic debut album generated is only getting bigger after their latest record and their split EP with fellow DBB artist Museum Mouth. With their new material ready to hit the stage for the first time, Naked Naps is the perfect band to kick things off at this year’s Double Barrel Benefit.
