I can’t get enough of the latest campaign for The 1975s new album „A brief inquiry to online relationships“. I already raved about the brilliant single „Love it if we made it“ here. The Vinyl cover looks stunning and the whole poster campaign is just brilliant, monochrome black and white with lots of Helvetica porn. See it all on their Facebook page or on Instagram.
I haven’t really been into The 1975 so far, but then I stumbled on this.
Although their other output is great (love both albums and will definitely pick up their upcoming one),
most of their music is a Funk / 80s / Pop mash up made for the charts and big concert halls (and they are probably a teeny band).
But this one is an outstanding masterpiece, simply my favorite track in a long time.
I am listening to it since it’s release and still not getting tired of it.
These lyrics are killing me. Every line is a gut punch.
The vocal performance by Matthew Healy is amazing and deeply emotional.
This is a modern version of Billy Joel’s „We didn’t start the fire“ and I can’t understand why this didn’t get more attention.
And since Im a bit disspointed that they returned to their usual pop stuff afterwards I still like them, hopefully I can check them out on their next tour.
