The 1975 are just a little over a month away from the release of their new album I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It, and in anticipation they've release yet another disco-fueled pop rock jam: "The Sound."
Unlike lead singles "Love Me" and "UGH!," there's a heavier sense of guitar in "The Sound," which harkens back to the songs that first made fans fall in love with The 1975 in the first place like "Chocolate" and "Sex." And lead singer Matty Healy's British vocals rise above it all, with his accent peppering in a sense of snarkiness that one normally reserves for the likes of The Kooks or Arctic Monkeys.
And while there's definitely some old school 1975 (if you want to call 2013 old school), the glitzy keyboards and synthesizers and those funky basslines that are so prevalent in "Love Me" and "UGH!" remain, tying well in to the rest of I Like It When You Sleep...
"The Sound" is the third single to be released from The 1975's forthcoming sophomore album I Like It When You Sleep..., which is due for release on Feb. 26. And, if all of this isn't enough for you, the band will be following up the release of their album with an extensive North American tour, set to kick off on April 18.
