Currently Loving – The 1975

Nearly two years ago in Brighton was the first time I saw The 1975 perform, they were a virtually unknown band from Manchester who were begging us to buy their merchandise so they had enough money to make it home. I had initially gone to see another of my favourite bands; Little Comets perform and The 1975 were one of two supporting acts, we didn’t take much notice when they first came on and started playing, however after five minuets or so they began to catch our attention…

To tell you the truth I can’t remember what songs they played at all, but I do remember that I went home and typed them in on good straight away, however nothing came up. They had a tumblr with one single page containing a minimum amount of information about them and that was absolutely it, there was nothing else at all, so I took the view that I’d just have to give up. I forgot about them until a couple of months later when I was browsing through iTunes and notices the first of their EPs was due for release soon, so I clicked pre order and after that EP was released it was love at first sound…

It was on repeat for months and as each of the other EPs came out they would be added to the loop.


As I’m sure a lot of you know they released their debut album a month or so ago and I can’t praise it enough, it’s F A B U L O U S. My favourite songs on the album are Menswear, Settle Down and She Way Out and I’m still as in love with Sex now as I was when I first heard it.


I literally can’t praise this album enough and if you haven’t heard it you really need to check it out.
