Joensuu Finland 15th–17th Jul 2016

The 1975 (UK)

The 1975

The 1975 from Manchester represents the contemporary wave of British rock. Their winning formula is an amalgam of guitar rock, dance beats and sweet melodic pop. The immense positive energy and genre blending attitude of the band is similar to their countrymen Bastille. A coincidence or not, both bands rocketed to the UK charts in 2013.

The 1975's concisely titled second album I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It was released this February. The album constains even more funky, colorful and groovy pop rock than before. The older music aficionados can't help but smile, so much these tracks bring to mind the late, great David Bowie's songs like Fame and Let's Dance. Better get ready to move your feet.
