The 1975 are probably my favorite group to break onto the scene in recent years. This track is a good example of their sound and comes off their newest album (which is only their second) richly titled ‘I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It’…yeah that’s an absurdly long name for an album and sounds quite emo but hey, the musics good.
They tend to tap into the 80’s vibe with their music and fashion, which has been done before, obviously, but their take on it seems really fresh to me. This track sounds like an 80’s euro pop number lavished with a fresh coat of modern flair.
That being said, you’ve probably heard one of their hits on the radio, but if you’re into the big 80’s sound go ahead and check ‘She’s American’ out. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
