Hi, I’m Elvis. I work at MuchMusic, make TV, short films and music videos. I like music and cheap chicken wings.
If you like bands like MGMT, Passion Pit or Arcade Fire you will love this band from New Zealand, The Naked and Famous. Their debut album, Passive Me, Aggressive You was released in September and they’ve already released some pretty amazing singles from it including the song I have on repeat now – “Young Blood.”
Ok, I’m one of those people. You know the type – when you love a song you can have it on repeat at nauseum. The problem has gotten so out of hand that I’ve even had roommates move out because I would listen to a song non-stop that it actually drove them crazy. I’ve had neighbours knock on my door and asked me to switch the song. I’ve even been dumped once because the person I was dating got mad at me because when we were making out I would get up every time the song ended and press repeat. If you’re wondering why I just didn’t put the song on repeat, it’s because the repeat button was broken – possibly by an ex-roommate.
So if you want to be the coolest kid at the next party you go to make sure you slip some The Naked and Famous in the playlist and hit repeat!
Thanks to all-knowing and amazing Liz Trinnear who introduced me to this amazing band. Follow me at @eprusic.
