Unless you live under a rock, you’ve probably heard The 1975. The British quartet have been more visible than Kim Kardashian’s ass in 2016, appearing on everything from Jimmy Fallon to Saturday Night Live – where they were introduced by Larry David and Bernie f’ing Sanders. Other than “Feeling the Bern” on SNL and showing up everywhere, The 1975 have spent 2016 dropping delicious singles like “A Change Of Heart” and “Love Me“. After digging into their discography, they’ve skyrocketed to the top of our “must see” list and, lucky for us, we won’t have to wait long to see them.
The 1975 will bring their indie rock sound to Meadow Brook Amphitheatre on Saturday, May 21 in support of their newest album, it’s a mouthful to say but a delight to listen to, I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware of It.
The 1975 combine a synthy retro-rock, with the hypnotic aura of lead singer, who’s also a Joseph Gordon Levitt look-alike, Matty Healy. The combination produces a beautiful, seductive show you can’t ignore. The often shirtless Healy gives off a definite Prince-like vibe, from his sexually charged lyrics, to his enigmatic personality and androgynous style. He’s the definition of a rock star: you don’t quite get it, but you can’t stop watching. We can’t wait to be mesmerised in person when they take the stage.
