Last Monday, The 1975 released their self-titled debut album which looks set to chart at Number 1 in the UK's Official Album Chart on Sunday.
We are huge fans of the band at Cam FM and have been lucky enough to chat to the boys on a number of occasions - at the beginning of the year at the tiny Portland Arms in Cambridge through to most recently at their summer festival stops at Latitude and T in the Park. It is clear that this is a band who have come a long way in a very short space of time, and deservingly so on the back of such hit singles as 'Chocolate', 'The City' and 'Sex'.
Speaking to us at T in the Park, lead singer Matty interestingly told us that he actually finds huge festival performances less intimidating than playing at small venues like the Portland Arms; he told us, 'you lose the sense of the individual when you are playing to that many people, it becomes this kind of mass identity so it's a bit easier to compose yourself'.
George, drummer in the band, talking about the sound of the band being suited to sunny festival fields, said 'hopefully our music makes you feel good'. Indeed, it looks like The 1975's feel good vibes are taking the charts by storm.
