New Zealand is a long way away.  Which is why it isn’t too surprising that it’s taken so long for me to hear electro-pop group The Naked and Famous, despite the fact that their single “Young Blood” debuted at #1 in New Zealand on June 14th (it’s currently still on the charts at #25).  The immediate popularity shouldn’t be a surprise – after giving it a few listens, it’s fun, light summer-y feel becomes quite infectious.  It’s a bit of a shame that the song didn’t catch on a bit earlier here in North America – I have the feeling it would have been a great summer anthem.
