During SXSW I took my best friend to see The 1975. We both had bands we wanted to see, some which played at the same time, but I knew she would love them and made sure this was one show she didn’t miss. She saw them as they set up, heard the lead singer, Matty, announce that they were about to play a song called “Sex” and immediately said to me, “The most beautiful boys in the world…of course they have a song called ‘Sex’!”. Funny, but true, The 1975’s Sex EP is just as hot as is sounds.
More focused on an ethereal sound than their other EPs the first track “Intro/Set 3” draws you into the EP and the second track “Undo” continues that state of absolute bliss. The third and title track “Sex” hits you with upbeat rock and cheeky lyrics:
Mirroring the last track of their Music For Cars EP and one of my favorite songs “Me”, the last track of the Sex EP “You” really ties the EP together, almost as if it borrows something you love from each track. With an epic build and layered chorus at the end that casually fades to silence you can’t press replay fast enough. Hearing a mixture of all their EPs live is going to be awesome tomorrow, and I can’t wait to bring all my friends from home to witness it. Listen to the Sex EP below and listen to it live person tomorrow at KFN!
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!
