Song: All Of This (Single). Artist: The Naked And Famous. Reviewer: Joe Dodgshun.

On the first synthetic sounding drum-kicks of All Of This, the newest track from The Naked And Famous initially seems … familiar. So far, so 80s/90s flashback (read: Ladyhawke).

But then you realise that they actually have a drummer as opposed to a drum machine and then their signature electro-fuzzy bass kicks in, marking the track easily recognisable as a TNAF creation. Very little progression occurs in what is essentially a stripped back melody comprised a mere handful of chords, but it is pleasantly spurred by the soft purring vocals of mainstay members Alisa and Thom.

Although feedback subtly creeps up as time ticks on, it is overall low on complexity but high on charm and comes with very high production values. With a complete reshuffle of band members excluding the core duo, this may not quite be on par with the strongest TNAF tracks, but stands as a strong statement of intent for the crew’s revamped line-up.

Bring on the album.
