New Sounds: The 1975
ONE TO WATCH 2012
It's Not a Date, It's a Band
The 1975 are four friends from Manchester. They make expansive pop noir that echoes their home city's sonic history.
The title track that opens their debut EP is a darkly atmospheric introduction to The 1975, densely layered synths and vocoder-effected harmonies leading into the punchy drums of heavy, electronic lead track 'The City', which has already received a number of plays on Radio 1 in the UK. The 1975's music is a highly evolved update of the Manchester scene, characterised by lush arrangements and powerful songwriting. The band this week debuted the new music video from EP closing track 'Woman,' and here it is...
