I had the pleasure of putting The 1975 on at Mixtape last night. I’ve booked a fair few buzz bands over the past few years and it’s fairly rare that they actually live up to the hype – The 1975 managed to though!
Huge, anthemic, festival-ready tracks with a strong 80s vibe (almost Prince-esque in places!?) – every song sounded like a single. I’ll be pretty surprised if they don’t go on to do some pretty big things… good luck to ’em!
