The ongoing momentum surrounding The 1975 is showing no signs of abating with news of the biggest headline show of their short career to date being confirmed this week.
The Manchester band will headline London’s Shepherds Bush Empire on September 20th, before moving north for a hometown show at Manchester’s Ritz venue a day later.
The 1975 were a Live4ever Presents featured band last year upon the release of their debut EP ‘Facedown‘. “Our only window into their secretive world, one fascinating aspect of the EP is the variation and diversity of the music within,” the review reads.
“Its eponymous opener swoops and glides on a cloud of nu-gaze (can it still be called ‘’nu’’?) ambience. Multi-tracked vocal harmonies, tinkling pianos, synth drones and heartbeat tremors hint at the existence of a song – but confirm the existence of a mood. A startling opener for the EP, a brave one and most of all, an exceptional one.”
