The 1975 – Matthew Healy (vocals/guitar), Adam Hann (guitar), George Daniel (drums) and Ross MacDonald (bass) – share another gem off their massive self-titled debut album, ‘The 1975’ (released through Dirty Hit/Polydor on September 2nd): ‘M.O.N.E.Y’.
The 1975’s (FAME’S BEST NEW BAND OF 2012 AND THE ONE TO WATCH IN 2013) album reflects the Manchester art-pop quartet’s shape-shifting adventurousness, an album of indelible choruses and mesmeric melodies that glides from electro grooves to alt-rock explosions to dreamy interludes.Healy says: “Our musical vocabulary is 100% the same because we grew up listening and playing music together”… The only restriction the four-piece gave themselves when writing the songs that make up ‘The 1975’ was that there would be no restrictions.
