Their first record, 2014’s Reclining Nude, was a collection of short songs, rich with four-part harmonies. The band returned in 2015 with a fuller sound on the LP Dragon, mixed by Jason Quever (Papercuts). The record was described as “sparkling” in a four-star rating by the Volkskrant. Their performance at Noorderslag in 2016 was “the highlight of the festival” according to KindaMuzik.
Naive Set has shared the stage with like-minded bands such as Chain and The Gang, White Fence, Crystal Stilts, Ultimate Painting and Nap Eyes. They’ll return with a new album in 2018, recorded in London by James Hoare of Ultimate Painting. While, in the past they’ve been described as “charmingly naive”, these new recordings may reveal a less innocent Set.
