“Girls Like You” is the third single from the début album, Passive Me, Aggressive You by The Naked And Famous. The single is actually about two minutes shorter than the album version, but that does not particularly matter. The 126 extra seconds on the album is basically some unnecessary weird noises and slowly descending feedback.
The song, musically, is quite enjoyable. It’s a mixture of shoegaze and electropop with a very infectious chorus. The track builds up to a nice climax, followed by a much improved twenty seconds of feedback and noise, compared to the album format. However, the main downside is that after a few spins, the listener realises that the originally infectious chorus of “don’t you know people write songs about girls like you?” becomes a little repetitive.
