New Music Video: The 1975 ‘The Sound’


Out on Dirty Hit through Sony Music Entertainment Australia, I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it is the highly-anticipated second album from The 1975 and the follow up to the quartets million-selling self-titled debut. The album debuted at #1 on the iTunes chart in Australia. Recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Healy and Daniel alongside production collaborator Mike Crossey, the album distils their love of 80s sonics into something that sounds impossibly now. A record that shifts between shimmying guitar grooves, experimental electronic soundscapes and cascading, adventurous pop songs, whilst always sounding part of the same whole. The perfect juxtaposition between the band’s monochrome debut and their technicolored return, the newly debuted video for ‘The Sound’ takes them from the boxed-in nature they were labeled as to the cultural space they now occupy. Acutely self-aware and ready to defy any preconceptions “The 1975 are more important than you think.”
