The 1975 Speak To Their Generation At Glastonbury After Brexit


The 1975 Glastonbury Festival

The 1975 frontman Matt Healy took time out of the band’s Glastonbury set on Saturday (June 25) to speak about his thoughts on the EU referendum result. Dressed in a white flared suit, the singer said he felt the older generation had voted for something that his generation didn't want, causing cheers from the crowd at Worthy Farm.

“This song is about compassion, and loving people, and I feel like as a young person I’ve got a responsibility to say something. What do I know – I don’t f****** know anything, I’m a popstar in a suit,” he said introducing ‘Loving Someone’.

The 1975 Land First Ever Billboard Number One With 'I Like It When You Sleep...'


The 1975

The 1975 rock their way to the number one in the Billboard 200 Chart with their long-awaited second album 'I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It'. The album has also given them another number one in the UK, taking Adele's place.

The 1975The 1975 hit number one in both the UK and US

So the Manchester four-piece haven't made themselves the most likeable of bands; quite the opposite. They've been openly critical about their fellow musicians, not to mention openly criticized for their shameless arrogance, but it turns out they were right to be cocky if the release of 'I Like It When You Sleep...' is anything to go by.

The Japanese House Will Have Everyone Drowning In 'Cool Blue' By The Year End


The 1975

Absorb yourself in a haze of poppy dreamscapes with up and coming London artist The Japanese House, whose latest single 'Cool Blue' is proving too mesmerizing to switch off. In fact, we're pretty certain our end-of-the-week stress levels have significantly reduced with the help of this melancholic melody maker.

The Japanese House promoThe Japanese House is coming with her second EP 'Clean'

If you don't believe us, experience it yourself. Everything from the gentle yet fast-paced guitar and melodic synths to the harmonised, choir-like vocals have a remarkably hypnotising effect on the listener; and only then does the beat kick in, synchronize with your pulse, and you get an expansive, satisfyingly full sound that never seems to over-indulge. It's flawless.

The 1975 Unveiled As The Hardest Working Band Of 2014


The 1975

Normally the phrase ‘workmanlike’ is an unflattering adjective to describe rock bands, but in the following instance it’s laudable. In terms of shows performed and distance travelled to do so, the hardest working band this year has been The 1975.

Isle of Wight Festival 2014 Review


If there's something to take away from this year's Isle of Wight Festival, it's probably sunburn. Unlike the mud bath of two years ago, 2014 will be remembered for serving up one of the hottest weekends I can remember for a festival, along with some crowd-pleasing performances. While not every act managed to capture their moment in the sun, all the major names delivered in spades.

Isle of Wight Festival 2014 Review

But it wasn't just the music that made the weekend for many; a real sense of celebration seemed to erupt across the site. Partly fuelled by anticipation over the World Cup and partly because of the good weather, thousands of smiling faces could be seen everywhere. Sunflowers seemed to be an essential festival accessory and many opted for as few clothes as possible with t-shirts looking like they'd gone out of fashion altogether. I've even had to make a note in my diary that it's international flip-flop day on June 20th, just one of the many things I learnt around Seaclose Park this year.

The highlight of Friday afternoon should have really been local boy Tom Odell on the main stage. But his piano led ballads took some time to win the crowd over despite his number 1 album 'Long Way Down'. By the time he'd finished though, the reaction showed that he'd justified his place on the main stage billing.

The 1975 might have been billed as the main event at Bushmills Live 2014, but it was Tired Pony who stole the show at the intimate old whiskey distillery.

Bushmills Live 2014 Review

Fine drizzle swirled through the air as a select group of 700 competition winners funnelled their way through the entrance to the Bushmills Live festival.

But with free whiskey, free food and an enticing line-up ahead, the lucky few who had been granted admission to the exclusive festival showed no sign of letting the weather dampen their spirits.
