After weeks of hinting to fans on socials of new music, The Naked and Famous today have released to much fanfare their new single ‘Sunseeker’, out through Island Records Australia/UMA.
‘Sunseeker’ strays from the guitar-driven dynamic of the band’s previous output and embodies a more electronically sculpted sound, brilliantly contrasted with frequent bursts of sweetly childlike sing-along vocals.
Alisa Xayalith says “’Sunseeker’ was written in a time when I was covered in joy and positivity. It was inspired by my dog, Ginger. She came into my life unexpectedly, as did the boy who I fell in love with that found her. I didn’t grow up with a family pet, and now I can’t imagine life without her. She was present for all the TNAF sessions over the last year. I started calling her my ‘Sunseeker’—she’d disappear into the garden, and I’d find her in various places basking in patches of sunlight beaming through the trees. The song is about something, or someone, appearing in your life that you didn’t know you needed.”
