Indie sensations, The 1975, will perform in Singapore for the very first time on July 22, 2014 at The Coliseum, Hard Rock Hotel Singapore, Resorts World Sentosa.
Formed in 2012, the English alternative/indie rock band hails from Manchester and consists of Matthew Healy (vocals, guitar), Adam Hann (guitar), George Daniel (drums) and Ross MacDonald (bass). The band made waves when their debut self-titled album debuted at No. 1 in the UK charts, leading to sold out tours across the world.
The 1975 have been waiting for the right moment to unveil their stories of lust, intoxication and the unabashed grittiness of modern youth. “This (debut) record is a proper soundtrack to our formative years,” Matty says of their debut album, co-produced with Mike Crossey (Arctic Monkeys, Foals, The Kooks). “It’s everything that I know and every single song on the album, at some point, has been the most important thing in my life. I’ve spent my adult life working towards this album. It’s literally everything I am.”
Though generally acknowledged as an alternative rock group, they have been influenced by diverse genres including electro-pop, electronic music, guitar pop, and R&B. Lyrically, The 1975 explore themes of discovery and novelty in the more specific context of sex, love, drugs, hope, death, and fear, thus the basis of rock music.
