Couldn't snag vinyl from The Naked and Famous this past Record Store Day? That's alright! We're giving away one signed, 12" vinyl of the band's 'Passive Me, Aggressive You'... Read More »
Everyone knows that the very best music can meddle with your mind, plunging you into the opposite extremes of both happiness and sadness all at once, in intense three minute bursts. It can transport you temporarily to a realm where anything is possible and nothing is out of reach. The latest key holders to that illusive turf are New Zealand's The Naked And Famous (TNAF).
These five young Aucklanders have at their disposal a seemingly effortless ability to capture the giddy fun and relentless hooks one has come to expect from the very best electro-pop, while at the same time striving for something grander, more brooding and atmospheric. It's this special proposition that has landed the band triumphant success on their native soil (their single 'Young Blood' debuted at number one in the NZ chart, as did the album Passive Me, Aggressive You on its recent release, both on the group's own Somewhat Damaged label), and has meant that containing their sounds to their homeland has been something of an impossibility.
Hey folks. We've seen a few incorrect lyrics floating about... they are up on our website if you're interested - http://t.co/kg0gTXKj
It's been a privilege to work with @specialproblems but we have to thank Jordan and Stefan for lending their bangin' bods for The Sun.
We feel so honoured to have recieved the International Achievement Award, back home in NZ. Thank you very much! #vnzma
iTunes is NOT an artist-friendly system as far as fixing typos. The fact that typos occur is mind blowing.
