N-A-I-V-E-S — Crystal Clear


Alt-pop duo N-A-I-V-E-S are an eccentric group from London who bare the sound of Metronomy lost in a jungle captured by the imagination of Henri Rousseau. With a recent history of heavy radio spinned singles ‘W.I.G.O’ and ‘Fashion Pineapple’ the band have expanded their wide-spread sound further but remain in catchy and contemporary pop ground.

Volcanoes, mountains and psychedelic textures are some of the aesthetics for the video for ‘Crystal Clear’. The evolving visuals convey similar themes to the soundtrack with repetition and colours that ablaze and expand on the gravity of the group’s experimentation.
N-A-I-V-E-S exotic pop sound blends hook laden synths with huge tropical beats and funk bass perfectly showcased in ‘Crystal Clear’, the new vibrant single and equally flamboyant video. The song pushes their sound boundaries even further in uplifting electro pop affair confirming the band’s ability for powerful sense of intrigue with their intricate production.

N-A-I-V-E-S have their sights set on releasing their self-titled debut album in 27th January. With the release of their debut album in their headlights, the duo have already gained an impressive live reputation in the UK with support slots for the likes of Friendly Fires and Mystery Jets. Their previous singles ‘W.I.G.O’ and ‘Fashion Pineapple’ garnered them extensive radio airplay from the likes of BBC London and Amazing Radio and have been reverberated on the high streets from the likes of Topshop and H&M.
