While you were all over there waiting for new music, everyone’s favorite alternative group The Naked and Famous has been re-recording stripped down versions of some of their favorite gems. Having already released the stripped version of “Higher”, their latest single is a simplified acoustic medley of tracks “A Stillness” and “Hearts Like Ours”. Continuing to engage lead vocalist Alisa Xayalith’s gorgeous voice in soft echoes, the song envelopes you in a tranquil, light blanket of fresh thought.
The Naked and Famous does a phenomenal job of playing with dissonance in their sound, even moreso in this reworked track. If you’re looking to relax, this is your new jam.
“A Still Heart” is available now, as is the latest album Simple Forms. Keep up with The Naked and Famous here.
