Band Feature: The 1975

Words by Paige Kochanski

From Jason Tate to Pete Wentz and everyone in between, the most buzzed about band of 2013 is The 1975. From the pure, addictive quality of Matty Healy’s vocals crashing into the electro-rock’n’roll perfection of Adam Hann (guitar), Ross Macdonald (bass) and George Daniel (drums), to the mysterious black and white additive to all media, the years taken to fully develop what The 1975 will become have generated a band with a fresh vision on music that’s needed now more than ever. Releasing a trilogy of EP’s, “Facedown”, “Sex” and “Music For Cars” listeners saw the vision, passion and skill grow with each release. The Manchester natives make music that’s smart, raw and real. As fun and memorable as anything mainstream but without the burden of dumbing down lyrics or using other unfortunate methods, The 1975 have earned not only being one of the most anticipated debuts of 2013, but have been hypothesized to be one of the biggest bands in the music scene. Their self-titled album drops September 2nd and the band will be touring Europe and America for the remainder of the year. Check out the tour dates below and keep up with The 1975 on facebook.
