This year's recipients of the Philip Hall Radar Award at the Shockwaves NME Awards 2011, The Naked And Famous, will be releasing their debut album titled 'Passive Me, Aggressive You' on March 14th.
When co-vocalist/guitarist Thom Powers accepted his band's award at the ceremony, he said "Thank you very much. I'm not even sure anybody even knew who we were here. We're not from around here, but cheers!" No need for them to worry - people most certainly know who they are by now.
But if you don't, and if you're curious what that the hype's about (besides them just having a really cool name), then give a listen to this track from the New Zealanders' forthcoming album, exclusively on NME.com.
What do you think of 'The Sun'?
