'In Rolling Waves' is certainly a The Naked and Famous album, there is that same signature clear energy. Vocals shared by Alisa Xayalith and Thom Powers' on individual tracks or working just as well on duos.
Here there are examples of a slower pace and a deeper texture. It would be unfair to say an edge has gone, more accurate to say it has been honed. With the opening track `A Stillness' you can sense the band has undergone a development, as I said slower, and in this track almost a tinge darker; `A Heart Like Ours' has echoes of the previous album with Alisa's vocals soaring about the waves of sound; then comes `Waltz' handled by Thom and a much more introspective gentle offering while `Rolling Waves' again harks back to the previous album.
And this is the tone of the album moving from one pace to another. It's a very satisfying mesh of the signature sound of the band with a confidence to move on into those other areas. The last track highlights this, `A Small Reunion' is a poignant ballad sung as a duo, strings brought in to good effect without swamping those foundations of the band's music.
I mentioned these tracks just an examples, the whole album is an uplifting joy to listen to.
Once again (bears repeating) very encouraging for their future

A good follow on album from a band that seems able to produce a good sound and a second album that makes you listen to it over and over, then go and get the first album out again.Published on 17 Dec. 2013 by Gerard Jarosz
A great variety of tunes with amazing vocals, not one track wasted. I bought their previous album and wondered if the second would live up to the first. It did in every wayPublished on 21 Oct. 2013 by Crown Jules
