The Naked and Famous are back.

New album, tour dates, and a new song (“Hearts Like Ours”) to kick it all off for the New Zealand band.

The Naked and Famous are back.

The Naked and the Famous are back with a new record In Rolling Waves, soon to be released on September 17th through Republic. They've released a single from the album "Hearts Like Ours" that's right on par with the whole of their previous debut album. Sometimes it's hard to judge a band off their debut album, even if it's as great as Passive Me, Aggressive You, which is undoubtedly one of the most infectious debuts of the last couple years. 

That album rode on the success of the ridiculously popular single "Young Blood," which has been seen and heard on radio, film, TV commercials, and beyond. The record pushed the New Zealand band into the indie elite, and then way past it into the mainstream. This new song has the same feel as their old album. Singer Alixa Xayalith and friends return after nearly three years, bringing the electro-pop-esque feel to their new song "Hearts Like Ours." Muted tones and building vocals in the first 45 seconds ensue, then blasts into a full-blown chorus which sounds... oh so familiar to their sound? 

There's definitely a mold and formula here, but that being said the band is young and their sound is winning. Xayalith's voice is cooling, calming, like someone who's seductively telling you a secret. This is the best electro-esque pop this side of Passion Pit. Check out their fall tour!
