Beyond a life hardwired to pop culture via the 24 hour news feed, The Naked And Famous elicit a romantic connection inspired by the golden era of alternative rock; a shared response to a teenage soundtrack of epic, emotionally charged mid nineties music. Released in March 2011, their ambitious debut Passive Me, Aggressive You featured the singles, 'Young Blood' and 'Punching In A Dream'. Lauded by the NME, it was "A classic case of lovely and beautiful: TNAF's passive melodicism and aggressive innovation clash in a dazzling blaze of psych/sonic fireworks" and Rolling Stone magazine described Young Blood as one of the year's "best singles". In 2013 The Naked And Famous are matured and determined to deliver new music to their fans as soon as possible. "Every song feels like it's in the middle of something. It's not after the fact, it's momentary," says Thom. "I feel like the whole record has had this 'less is more' approach. It feels more vital." Vital? Certainly. Exhilarating? Definitely.
