The 1975 Debut New Video for "Girls"
The 1975 have just premiered their new official video for "Girls"! Click HERE to check it out or watch below. On creating the new clip, frontman Matthew Healy explains: "The story of the band who suffer at the hands of a record label shortly after a delirious rise is a tale as old as time. So we kinda wanted to make a tongue in cheek video about it. Twinned with our love of 80’s pop, it’s innocence, grandiosity and conceptual ideas in music videos - we wanted to make a video about a record label’s attempt at enforced conformity. We got our mate Adam down to a studio in Los Angeles at the start of our USA tour, got 4 models and made a video about us not wanting to make a video." You can read the full explanation HERE.
"Girls" appears on The 1975's recently released self-titled debut LP, available now on iTunes. The guys are currently on their US headline tour supporting the album and all upcoming dates can be seen HERE.

The 1975 to Release Sex EP on November 20th
In an age of chillwave and bedroom recordings The 1975 provide a refreshing take on the rock genre. Big sounds populate the band's new Sex EP, titled after the lead single. While still only in their early twenties the Manchester natives have been playing together for over a decade and their current sound is a representation of youth's enthusiasm toward pop, rock, electronica and contemporary production techniques.
Drawing heavily on those influences, an overriding sense of melody pervades the band's songwriting making for a listening experience with real resolve. The band is currently at work on their debut album with producer Mike Crossey (Arctic Monkeys, Foals) for release Spring 2013.
Listen to the title track below or on Soundcloud and pre-order the entire Sex EP now exclusively through iTunes.
