LISTEN UP! The Naked & Famous ‘Hearts Like Ours’


After a period of absence New Zealanders THE NAKED & FAMOUS return with ‘Hearts Like Ours’, our first tasted of their forthcoming album In Rolling Waves.

Opening with a thumping synth heavy baseline while Alisa Xayalith’s vocals crows about a romantic daydream, ‘Hearts Like Ours’ is perfectly in line with what fans most enjoyed about the bands pervious efforts. There is a great synergy with the electronic elements and the more rock elements. Also, the lyrics present a bevy of romantic images, which are no doubt heightened by Xayalith’s expressive and touching performance.

In Rolling Waves is set to be released on September 13, and lets hope we get a slew of tour dates announced a little closer to the album release.
