Many music groups struggle to make their sound unique. The struggle comes from wanting to make music that is different, but also wanting to sell albums. It is hard to ride the fine line between these two desires and few do it with success.
The 1975 have accomplished this feat to a certain degree with their latest album.
The highly anticipated, “I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Beautiful,” was eagerly awaited by their devoted fan base and has found great success since its release.
Yet, it would be wrong to call their work on the album mainstream. Their electric, unique and fun sound show that they are more than just another popular alternative group.
Perhaps one of the better songs on the album is “The Battle of Me and My Brain” which features great lyrics and sound.
Then there is the single “Love Me,” which features the best beat of all the tracks on the album.
While their music is not necessarily for everyone, there is no denying that the 1975 produce some of the most original content today. Not to mention that the lyrics for a majority of their songs are not typical, they are clearly deep, and the ability to create such meaningful tracks deserves great recognition.
The 1975 will never reach the levels of success that more popular groups have seen so quickly, but if they continue to adhere to their distinctive sound, there is no doubt that their fan base will grow for years to come.
