"Favourite album ever."
5 stars"

This album is such a keeper. Almost every song on it I love. Young Blood is my most played track on iTunes, and Eyes, No Way, and Girls Like you are well up there with nearly 50 plays each. It never gets old, I listen to it all the time. Its incredible that such a high quality and unique band can emerge from little old New Zealand. Can't wait for a follow up, and I hope they see some international success.

"Great first album of incredible songs"
5 stars"

Best NZ band. Modern 80's sound. Very catchy songs


3 CD set, full album plus This Machine and No Light EPs in a very special digipack previously only available in the UK.

This very special 3CD package from The Naked and Famous – featuring the full ‘Passive Me, Aggressive You’ hit album, plus ‘This Machine’ and ‘No Light’ EPs in a deluxe digpak cover.

“The Naked and Famous (name taken from a line in a Tricky song, not Paris Hilton) have been putting in the hard yards for a number of years now. This full-length debut follows the release of two "ahead of their time” EPs in 2008 that punched well above their weight and kept fans hanging out for more of the band's unique synth pop-rock.

‘Passive Me, Aggressive You’ does not disappoint. From opening track and lead single “All of This” the energy is consistent, engaging, and oozes youthful optimism. “Young Blood” has just earned the band a Silver Scroll nomination and on top of this they are up for a Critic's Choice award at the N.Z. Music Awards in October.

Solid, simple drumbeats and bass lines set the cornerstone for dirty '80s synth and distorted guitar hooks. The vocal duties are shared by Ailsa Xayalith and Thom Powers, complimenting each other well, one never overpowering the other whilst adding diversity and range to a record that is sure to be a perfect spin for the coming summer months.
