The 1975 has returned with a new single, and a shocking new sound.
The track, titled 'People', is the latest single to be released from the band's upcoming fourth album, Notes on a Conditional Form. The single, and its dynamic accompanying music video feature a new aesthetic for the band. It's in-your-face and urgent, wasting no time with pleasantries.
Said to be a statement on the current political climate, 'People' is a bracing all-out rock assault from an otherwise indie pop-rock outfit. Much like its flashy – and at times, epilepsy-inducing – the track demands your immediate attention.
It is currently unknown if the entirety of Notes on a Conditional Form will take on this new sound, or if it'll be a mixture of the band's usual indie-pop tendencies and it's new raw direction.
Notes on a Conditional Form is set to be released on 21 February 2020 via Dirty Hit and Interscope.
The 1975 is set to perform live in Singapore on Monday, September 16 2019, at the Star Theatre, from 8pm onwards. The show is sold out.
