Popdar #15: The Naked and Famous.

The Naked and Famous are coming. For many in the UK they've already arrived, but after witnessing their brief but blistering live act at Heaven in London, it's clear that the band could end up a lot bigger than I initially imagined.

Now we've all heard the glistening keys crowd surfing on crushing guitars in "Punching in a Dream" and "Young Blood", but N&F are far from a one trick pony. Take "Spank" for example. Taking a big chunk of Yeah Yeah Yeahs groove, this could've been taken from "It's Blitz", and with no sweet synths to sweeten the dirt, we are left  with the gruesome pulse of distortion, propelled by an insanely catchy tune. It really is only a matter of time before the band take off, knocking your Kings of Leons and Vaccines out of the way.
