You don’t need to be high to know you love The 1975. Their most recent EP Music For Cars, is breathtaking… if SoundCloud had a personal count of how many times I’ve played the EP since I first heard it, the number would be embarrassing.
The EP starts out with a slow, enchanting intro called “Anobrain”, taking you on a chill, dreamy journey until the second track wakes you up with the addicting, catchy, and danceable single “Chocolate”. The third track on the EP, “HNSCC” brings you back to that dreamy state you started at with “Anobrain”, making you feel even more part of an experience, like the EP is a soundtrack of a movie you are suddenly in and attached to. Next, the etheral yet upbeat “Head.Cars.Bending.” is a sing-a-long, dance-worthy, track perfect for a live setting. The last track, “Me”, right now is my favorite song by The 1975. Hauntingly beautiful and a bit heartbreaking, “Me” mixes raw, honest, lyrics with absolutely gorgeous instrumentals. I especially hope to see them perform this track live on Thursday at Kung Fu Necktie! Although in my dream world they will play all of their EPs start to finish live…
The 1975 will be in Philly this Thursday playing a show at Kung Fu Necktie with Cruiser. The show starts at 8PM and you can get tickets here or by commenting on this photo to win tickets on my Facebook page!
