The Naked And Famous - In Rolling Waves

A welcome return.

Label: Fiction

Rating: 7

If you pay attention to the pages of DIY, you’ll already know all about ‘Hearts Like Ours’. The first track to be taken from The Naked And Famous’ second album, it’s that most common cliche - the perfect summer anthem. This time, though, it really is. All air punching synths against a rainbow sky, it stands head and shoulders above its compatriots on ‘In Rolling Waves’. That’s no major slight. Elsewhere there are still moments of equal excitement, just in quite different ways. ‘Waltz’, with its more lazy shuffle and understated earworm sort-of-chorus chief amongst them. A welcome return.
