We Don’t Believe What’s On TV
The Judge
Lane Boy
(Medley Mashup)
Message Man
Holding On To You
The Run [More]

Hailing from New Zealand, the alternative rock outfit will be spending the rest of the year touring America in support of their third studio album, Simple Forms. Relatively unknown outside of indie rock circles, The Naked and Famous made the jump to a more commercial alt rock sound in their latest release. The band is highly regarded and recognized in New Zealand, having won 9 New Zealand Music Awards and 1 NME award.
