One release I'm greatly anticipating this year is that of Manchester based four peice, The 1975, previously known as Drive Like I Do, The Big Sleep, Talkhouse and The Slowdown.The band have recently signed to London based label Dirty Hit Records and will be releasing an EP titled "Facedown" on August the 6th.
You can listen to "The City". a track which will feature on the EP by visiting their soundcloud here. The track possesses a great energy and rhythm, bursting to life with heavy percussion that is intertwined with grooving guitar riffs that propel the song forward. Lush synth soundscapes and heartfelt vocals add to heighten the mood.
