THE ’70s ARE BACK
The names of The 1975’s songs are easy to remember. Usually just one word long (“Sex,” “Chocolate,” “Girls”), the titles are as quick, catchy, and cute as the tunes they’re attached to, which makes the Manchester band’s September 2013 self-titled debut a taut collection of clean-cut, shiny indie pop that sounds like summer days spent in the sun. Led by Matthew Healy, the quartet offset their sweet-sounding songs with their leather jackets, black-and-white videos, and pouts like young Rolling Stones.
