Ride-or-die rockers The 1975 sing about doing the dirty in the sweetest, gentlest way we’ve heard this year. Watch their acoustic take on new single ‘Sex’ here.
Following the success of recent singles ‘Chocolate’ and ‘The City’, which received massive amounts of radio airplay, and support slots for Muse and The Rolling Stones already under their belts, Manchester-born The 1975 have solidified themselves as one of the year’s biggest breakthrough acts.
To herald the August 26th release of their new single ‘Sex’, the band have kindly provided Wonderland with an exclusive acoustic video of the song. The stripped back version is a much more delicate take on the original, with Matthew Healy’s vocals only accompanied by wistful guitar melodies. We’re saying this right now: the fangirls will love it.
The band are set to release their self-titled debut album on September 2nd, which was recorded at the Motor Museum in Liverpool with, Arctic Monkeys collaborator, Mike Crossey, who co-produced it alongside the band’s front man Matthew Healy and drummer George Daniel. If the singles have been anything to go by, the album is expected to be packed full of incredibly catchy indie-pop songs about being young, free and reckless (with frequent mentions of sex, duh).
