FAME RECOMMENDS: THE 1975 ‘SEX’ EPManchester exciting band The 1975’s ‘Sex’ EP, is released on Monday 19th November.
Opener ‘Intro/Set3’ is dominated by syncopated samples, glitchy beats and layered vocals, while ‘Undo’ displays heart-breaking R&B vocals and a production sensibility akin to that of Phil Spector within its wintry ambience and melodic wall of sound.The EP’s title track is a powerful electronica-tinged alt rock piece, with bright synthesizers and urgent vocals layered over grungy guitars and industrial drums, while ‘You’ takes its influence from 90s shoegaze. The reverb-drenched secret track ‘Milk’ continues this aesthetic, one that suits The 1975 so well.
