Favorably compared to The Big Pink, The 1975 are an English, Manchester-based alternative rock band consisting of Matthew Healy (vocals/guitar), Adam Hann (guitar), George Daniel (drums), and Ross MacDonald (bass). They have released four EPs: Facedown, Sex, Music for Cars and IV. Their highly anticipated self-titled debut album is scheduled to be released on 9 September 2013 through Dirty Hit/Polydor.
Sex was described by Paste Magazine as “equal parts ethereal and synth pop”, with “haunting” and “smooth” vocals. Their “mellow”, stripped down style was praised for its lack of “attention-grabbing production theatrics”.Though generally acknowledged as an alternative rock group, they have been influenced by diverse genres including electro-pop, electronic music, guitar pop, and R&B. Healy specifically cites Talking Heads, Prince, My Bloody Valentine, Michael Jackson, Peter Gabriel, Brian Eno, D’angelo and Sigur Rós as musical influences; he states that his greatest influence is the oeuvre of filmmaker John Hughes. Their “melancholic” black and white visual aesthetic is juxtaposed with major keys and what the band calls “classic pop sensibilities”.
