The beautiful boys from across the pond, The 1975, have released their next single off of their breathtaking self-titled debut album. “Robbers” is due out May 26th, and you can watch the heart-racing music video now! Here’s what lead singer Matthew Healy said of his ideas behind the video:
“I got really obsessed with the idea behind Patricia Arquette’s character in True Romance when I was about eighteen,” lead singer Matthew Healy explains. “That craving for the bad boy in that film it’s so sexualised. It was something I was obsessed with. ‘Robbers’ is about a heist that goes wrong – I suppose you can read it as a metaphor – and a girl who’s obsessed with her professional killer boyfriend. It’s a romantic ideal”.
The 1975 are currently on tour in the US and Canada supported by another one of our favorites, Bad Suns! They are also set to play a ton of festivals this summer including Glastonbury, Governor’s Ball, T in the Park, and Reading and Leeds. For tickets and tour information click here!
