A lot can happen in a year and The 1975 have achieved a heck of a lot since this time last year; A number one album in the UK, festival slots around Europe, a couple of headline tours and numerous sold out shows announced for 2014. They've now gone and changed the usual black and white aesthetic we're used to in their videos! I mean, come on guys, calm down a bit. Just kidding. The visual for a personal favourite of mine from the album, "Girls", actually sees Matt complaining about the use of colour in the beginning but it also sees them having a laugh and having some scantily clad pretty girls dancing around, playing their instruments, so it's an easy enough watch. Matt actually said the video is "about a record label’s attempt at enforced conformity" which came about after people thinking they were doing this when the video for "Sex" was also a stylistic change. Basically this is all just a bit "tongue in cheek" and a bit of good fun. Jolly good.
The track itself is taken from the aforementioned self-titled number one album which is out now. I'm sure we're going to be seeing a lot more of these boys in the coming years and I'm sure 2013 is just the tip of the iceberg. If you're wanting to catch them on tour in the UK there's a handful of dates which haven't sold out so check out their official website here. US and Euro dates can be seen over there too.
