The 1975 - Sex (Explicit)



To watch this band grow from their humble beginnings to what they resemble today has been nothing short of inspirational. Truly living up to their anthemic sound The 1975 return with a brand new video for Sex. Check it out above.

The band had the following to say about the video:
"The main idea behind the new video for “Sex” was centered around us wanting to incorporate a narrative that acted out the lyrical content of the song. It felt important for the narrative to be the true story of lyrics. So many of our tracks are based on real experiences, it was integral to have an honest portrayal of this. The make up of our music is centered around the juxtaposition of very honest often self deprecating personal stories set against uplifting major chord progressions. It is this dualism and notion of “sound tracking” our own lives which makes us cite John Hughes as such an important influence. Our love of cinematic music really drives us creatively and we wanted this represented in the video, we wanted to make a trailer to the movie of the song if you like.”

The single will be able to purchase from August 26th. You can Pre-Order the album at the following links. iTunes: http://smarturl.it/the1975album CD, Deluxe CD & Vinyl: http://smarturl.it/the1975store
