The 1975 - Love Me

Rarely has a new band sounded so fully formed and ready to take on anything that's thrown in their direction as The 1975 were hurtling out of the gates at the tail end of 2012. There's really no shying away from the fact the Manchester formed group have had one of, if not, the most successful debut records in recent times. From all of the late nights and high times with friends, right through to the shitty relationships and gameplaying I've been caught up in, The 1975 have soundtracked it all. Having sold out shows across the world, relentlessly covering the festival circuit, all before taking the UK and US by storm, the four-piece have transformed the way they work in to being one of the most proficient bands this generation has seen.

Playing in to the whole "June 1st" phenomenon, a date scribed in to a book discovered by Matty whilst holidaying in Majorca alongside the words "The 1975", the band plunged themselves in to darkness this summer before re-emerging with their new more colourful livery. Taking to Twitter to post a cartoon comic strip Healy went on to say "Our projected identity must change not only visually but philosophically". And whilst it's been a long time coming, we can finally sink our teeth in to what lays ahead for the group as they return with the first glimmer of what's to come from album no. 2.

Premiering as Annie Mac's hottest record in the world this evening Love Me effortlessly ties up with this resplendent new image as they emerge from their shadowy monochrome past with their funkiest work to date. Imagine Prince getting in to bed with Bowie then you're somewhere along the right lines. Take a listen to the big hitting heavily 80's inspired track below. You can order it now from iTunes.
