The 1975 performed "The Sound" and "Love Me" as the musical guest on the Feb. 6 episode of Saturday Night Live.

Both tracks are on the band's sophomore album, I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It, due out later this month. Frontman Matthew Healy danced around the stage as he sang the pop-rock anthems like it was 1975 all over again.

"This is the beginning of a new chapter for The 1975," said Healy at the time of the album's announcement. "Our new record signifies the start of a new world for us, a more colorful world a less colorful world. We want to play shows, we want a real shared experience, we want to play HUGE shows..."

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who appeared on the late night sketch show, was once again portrayed by comedian Larry David, the show's host, in a sketch dubbed "Bern Your Enthusiasm." David looked eerily similar to the Democratic presidential candidate as the two played Jack and Rose from the movie Titanic in one sketch.

I Like It When You Sleep, a followup to the Britpop band's 2013 self-titled debut record, drops Feb. 26 via Dirty Hit/Polydor. The band will head out on tour in the U.K. and Europe in early March before heading to the States in April to play the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival .
