In their new music video for "The Sound", released just after their album went online, The 1975 play in a clear box. Little by little, people start trickling in and watching them perform. The people's comments flash across the screen: "Punch your TV obnoxious", "Totally lacking the wow factor", and "Pompous arena synth pop". Near the end of the song, the observers find themselves in the box, while the band sits and watches them. For their second album the 1975 is beyond the petty YouTube comments and critiques. They're going to grow and evolve and perform what they want to. And that's why we love them.
"The Sound" is off The 1975's sophomore album I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It. The album is available on iTunes, and will be available on Spotify on March 11. The 1975 is currently performing over in the UK.
