Passive Me, Aggressive You from Naked and Famous puts a smile on my face. It’s just one of those odd, yet catchy albums that is so delightful to listen to.
The mix of male/female vocals – the synthesizers – the tribal beats. Everything is so well-orchestrated on this, their debut effort, that it’s well-deserving of this #8 spot on this year’s countdown.
I’m confident enough to say that more people know the song “Young Blood” (embedded below) than know the name of the band. The song was used in multiple media outlets this year and became a melody that almost everyone would recognize.
Here is a video embed of one of this year’s most popular indie songs, as mentioned above, “Young Blood.”
