If you learn anything from watching TV, you should you learn if you want to be famous you have to be naked! And in honor of our trashy tv shows, we made [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Naked & Famous[/lastfm]’ new single our tune of the day!
The Naked & Famous are not made up of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kim Kardashian[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Paris Hilton[/lastfm], and the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jersey Shore[/lastfm] Cast, they are an indie rock band from New Zealand. The band comprises of Thom Powers, Alisa Xayalith, Aaron Short, David Beadle and Jesse Wood. According to the ‘Young Blood’ Songfacts, they took the name from a line in UK trip hop singer-songwriter [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Tricky[/lastfm]’s track, ‘Tricky Kid’.
They have released only one album entitled ‘Passive Me, Aggressive You.’ The album has been a huge success all around the globe especially in their home country.
Today’s tune, ‘Young Blood’, is the second single from the album and debuted on the New Zealand chart at number one in 2010–the first New Zealand artist in three years to do so. The track is a synth-pop and electro song. Kevin Harley of BBC Music compared the song to the work of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]MGMT[/lastfm].
