The Naked & Famous – Young Blood

The Naked & Famous is a group from New Zealand whose record Young Blood teared it up back home this summer. I know what you’re thinking, they sound like Passion Pit, maybe even MGMT depending on who you’re talking to. The gift and curse of gaining attention as a new artist, you instantly get compared to someone else, however, if you’re drawing comparisons to those guys and making songs like this I’d say you’re doing something right…

I’m a tell you what Banks told me cuzz go ‘head switch the style up
If the they hate then let ’em hate
Watch the money pile up” – 50 Cent

Here’s a shocker, Neon Gold, the label behind for Passion Pit, Marina & The Diamonds, Ellie Goulding and The Knocks is singing them up to help increase their international appeal. I don’t know who the A&R at that label is but they’re picking winners right now, very impressive. Alright, I have no time for anything these days so I can’t dive into this song like I want to but press play on this gem, enjoy.

We’re only young and naive still
We require certain skills
The mood it changes like the wind
Hard to control when it begins…”
