The Naked and Famous release soaring single Higher and announce new album

A beaming synth-pop anthem to get you up and about this Monday morning.

Kiwi electro outfit The Naked and Famous have just announced that they'll be gifting us a new album this October, and first cut Higher is definitely one to help get you through the first day of the working week. Jagged synths, crisp vocals and a soaring chorus that brings back memories of The Knife's classic Heartbeats from a few years back, The Naked and Famous have nailed their first piece of new music since 2013's Rolling Waves. The new full-length, titled Simple Forms, was written and recorded at guitarist/vocalist Thom Powers' home studio in LA and was conceived at a time when TNAF had doubts about their future as a band, following the end of an eight year relationship between Powers and co-vocalist Alisa Xayalith. Thankfully, the Auckland based five-piece held strong, and early signs are that Simple Forms will be a release worthy of heavy rotation on playlists this coming summer.
