Song of the Day

No, the song of the day is not a pair of jeans.

Switching it up a bit, here’s New Zealand’s The Naked and Famous. If you’re a fan of Passion Pit or The XX, this is a band you have to check out. They offer a nice mix of the electricpop ballads and different singing (screaming?) that Passion Pit does, but also have the mellow, shared lead vocals that the XX have made huge. I would recommend checking out the whole album, called Passive Me, Aggressive You. The Naked and Famous are the next thing to hit it big in the US (they’re currently on a huge European tour), waiting for a Lollapalooza or Pitchfork to give them a little push.

Chiddy Bang did a remix of the song, which you can listen to here.

Also, all of their music videos are dope. Check out the Naked and Famous on Vimeo to see what I mean.
