Earlier this week I caught New Zealand band-of-the-moment The Naked And Famous at the Oxford Art Factory.
Their jangly ’80s pop sounds just as good live as on record. There’s little else on display on stage yet, but they’re still pretty new. Give them time and see what else they can bring. For most of us, just playing “Young Blood” (aka That Song In The Strongbow Ad) over and over again would be fine.
Another great Bitter Fingers show from London Fields Radio by Mark.
This week leads with a gem for Canadian listeners: Crystal Castles and Robert Smith covering a Platinum Blonde song.
I’ve heard this song – by new act The Naked and Famous – a lot on the radio recently, and I’m really getting into it. It has a joyous, triumphant ’80s pop feel, much like fellow Kiwi Ladyhawke. It makes me bop in my car.
Yeah yeah yeah yeah!
