The Naked & Famous Exclusive Video


The Naked and Famous are New Zealand's finest musical export since Crowded House, and that's a fact.

The band release their second album, In Rolling Waves today (September 16th) following on from their critically-acclaimed debut Passive Me, Aggressive You, which has racked up an impressive half a million sales since its release in 2011. The album featured the single Young Blood, which has already become an undoubted indie-pop classic, while the new record's lead single is Hearts Like Ours, which you can also watch below.

We've been given an exclusive behind-the-scenes video of the band as they made the new record in Los Angeles, so take a look to see them at work, revealing a few of the tricks behind their widescreen sound and the stories behind the songs.
