Sacrilege! This music doesn’t suck!!!!

The Naked And Famous
Passive Me, Agressive You
Universal Records
Released: March 14th, 2011

Sounds Like: The love child of Nine Inch Nails, Passion Pit, The Knife, MGMT, La Roux, & the best synths the 80s had to offer YET – still somehow still possessing a sound that is all their own due to the combo lead vocalists.

Feels like: The cool water you splash on your face after a long night of drinking bad combo liqueurs, and the perfect egg omelette that takes the sick away. Sweet salty summer cucumber freshness in a bag. Originality in it’s purest form.

Cool Because: They’re Kiwis from New Zealand, and everything from there is elusive and curious to non Kiwis, and because they remain Indie with only a P&D deal with Universal when they could have sold out. The cds plays well at a party, beginning to end, also for three days on end as I recently discovered..

Get on it now: Because you’re truly a couple years late, but can still say you’re ahead of the game and catch them at small venue shows as the tour starts TOMORROW.
