Music Monday: The Naked and Famous

The Naked and the Famous hail from New Zealand and are a post-punk revival band.

What's post-punk revival you ask?

That's basically what you get when you take inspiration from the original sounds and aesthetics of garage rock of the 1960s and post-punk and New Wave of the late 1970s. (according to uncle Wiki of course)

Think Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The White Stripes, The Strokes,  The Vines and Arctic Monkeys perhaps?

The female vocalist of The Naked and Famous has a darn cool name! Alisa Xayalith. Now where did that come from?!

The song Young Blood was prominently featured in the Pilot episode of Elementary, the American Sherlock Holmes remake by CBS. And then some of the other songs were on Gossip Girls, The Secret Cirle, Vampire Diaries, Grey's Anatomy etc.  Fun stuff!
