Akira’s Song of the Day comes from The 1975, my favourite band from Manchester right now. I did an Introducing piece on their ‘Facedown’ EP back in August and was keen to hear more – well THIS is taken off the second EP and I think it really establishes The 1975 as one of the most exciting new bands around. This track ‘Sex’ sounds like anthemic stadium rock and this is just their SECOND EP, it took Kings of Leon four albums before they started creating stadium rock. The 1975 have been ambitious from the off in creating epic songs. This is the track I remember listening to over a year ago when they were B I G S L E E P. Anyway another track of this ‘Sex’ EP is ‘You’ and it’s also very good. I believe these guys are genuinely worthy of all the hype they’re getting at the moment and I look forward to seeing them live sometime.
The 1975 – Sex
The 1975 – You
