New Zealand based indie electronic band The Naked and Famous have released their first single, ‘Higher’ off there upcoming album, Simple Forms. The album came together in the home studio of guitarist/vocalist/producer Thom Powers, after he broke up with fellow band member Alisa Xayalith, after nearly eight years together. Given the circumstances, the band says the upcoming album will be full of both pain and passion.
Higher is an upbeat song, and is a great jam for summer. The song also shows both the pain and passion that the band indicated would be a theme. This is a great indication of a potentially brilliant album to come by The Naked and Famous.
