The Naked And Famous have released a second album

The Naked And Famous singer Alisa Xayalith said the band managed not to argue when they lived together in Los Angeles.

The five-piece, originally from Auckland, New Zealand, got a house near Laurel Canyon, where they wrote most of their second album.

Alisa said: "We all get on so well, and it was great working in the house. There's no room for arguments when you live and work together. Most bands need their own space, but we were fine.

"There was this real growing sense of community and family. We're really lucky."

The band, also consisting of Thom Powers, Aaron Short, Jesse Wood and David Beadle, performed at Glastonbury in 2011.

They released their second album, In Rolling Waves, in September.

:: The Naked And Famous begin a UK tour on November 21.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

Take a friend's advice with a pinch of salt. Although you love this dreamer dearly, they don't have a realistic grasp of the situation. Trust your instincts instead. You've always taken great pride in your work ethic. Abandoning a project before it is finished will weigh on your conscience. Do the best you can with a severely reduced budget. The results won't be thrilling, but they will be respectable. Nobody will blame you for having to make bricks from straw.More
