Xayalith: We enjoy living together

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.

You feel optimistic and for good reason. An admirer has been trying to win your heart. All this attention is flattering. If you're single, keep playing hard to get. The more you resist, the more they'll persist. Are you already in a relationship? Start pursuing a cherished dream. Fulfilling your heart's desire will make you a better partner and friend. Dwelling on what might have been will just make you bitter. Take a risk. It's better to try and fail than be paralysed by fear.More
