The band’s year so far has been as memorable as their ambition is high. They recently embarked on a support slot across Europe with Two Door Cinema Club, played a clutch of triumphant shows at SXSW, and had a Top 20 hit with “Chocolate”. Their headline May 2013 tour sold out, as are two shows at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire and Manchester’s The Ritz in September 2013.
The 1975 have released three acclaimed EP’s so far, “Facedown”, “Sex” and “Music For Cars” and their songs have had over 1.5 million plays on Soundcloud. Whilst “Chocolate” has been the crossover hit of the year so far (it was on the Radio 1 playlist for 8 consecutive weeks, reached the top slot on Hypemachine and its video has had over a million views on Youtube), new single “The City” – to be released on May 20th 2013 – will take the group to even more searing heights. Introduced to the world as Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record, it’s a perfect snapshot of The 1975’s shape-shifting appeal.
Though they formed as a punk band whilst still at school, there’s no straitjacket to the current sound of The 1975, which veers between brooding art rock, crisp electronica, dancefloor R&B, helium hip-hop, shimmering balladry and 80′s gloss pop.
