The 1975 - Chocolate
Having charmed me in 2012 with their single "Sex", as well as impressed me with their live performance in Belfast last month, Manchester quartet The 1975 are gearing up to make 2013 their year. Ahead of their debut album planned for later this year, as well as a trailer for their 3rd E.P, the band have released their latest song, "Chocolate", which is a delicious little ditty indeed.
From the sound of it, the group have been taking a few cues from label mates Little Comets, given the adoption of syncopated rhythms and a similar vocal pattern to Robert Coles. The sound is still distinctively The 1975 though, even if the track sees them abandoning the incredibly deep drums that I had taken to be the band's trademark. With its sophisticated production, and its appealing pop aesthetic, "Chocolate" should be the track that firmly silences the band's naysayers, and should give the group's core followers something else to cherish.
"Chocolate" is taken from their upcoming E.P "Music For Cars", which will be released on 4th March
