To Watch: The Naked and Famous

I don't write very often about bands, for whatever reason. Perhaps I should do that more regularly.

Anyway, I mention that because when I do write about a band it means I'm really enjoying them and think they are worth your time. I discovered The Naked and Famous today at Suzi's recommendation and I am loving “Young Blood”. Musically and lyrically I find it very compelling. The video is rather awesome, too. There is a youthfulness to it, and it sounds hopeful. I love the synth-y string sounds.

Check it out for yourself:

The Naked And Famous - Young Blood from The Naked And Famous on Vimeo.

They're from New Zealand and this song is a single from their upcoming full-length. It's available on iTunes in New Zealand, and on their bandcamp for the rest of the world.

No, I'm not getting anything for this post, I just genuinely enjoy them. :)


We're only young and naive still

We require certain skills

The mood it changes like the wind

Hard to control when it begins

The bittersweet between my teeth

Trying to find the in-betweens

Fall back in love eventually

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Can't help myself but count the flaws

Claw my way out through these walls

One temporary escape

Feel it start to permeate

We lie beneath the stars at night

Our hands gripping each other tight

You keep my secrets hope to die

Promises, swear them to the sky

The bittersweet between my teeth

Trying to find the in-betweens

Fall back in love eventually

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

As it withers

Brittle it shakes

Can you whisper

As it crumbles and breaks

As you shiver

Count up all your mistakes

Pair of forgivers

Let go before it's too late

Can you whisper

Can you whisper

Can you whisper

Can you whisper

The bittersweet between my teeth

Trying to find the in-betweens

Fall back in love eventually

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

The bittersweet between my teeth

Trying to find the in-betweens

Fall back in love eventually

Yeah yeah yeah yeah
