Expect a lot of heartbreaking/hearthealing songs from LA quintet, The Naked and Famous, for…until the next record comes out. Because this upcoming one deals with the various stages of pain and recovery that comes when a romance ends. The five-piece shared their latest single “Laid Low” in which the lyric video reminds you of an alley in Hipsterville Silverlake that you would find yourself roaming around at 3am drunk…but we digress. While the ballad moves in tranquil midtempo resembling the gradual acceptance of the end of a relationship, it escalates into synthplosive momentums that are TNAF’s sonic signature:
