After removing all their Social Media accounts earlier this year, fans were left confused; Is this the end of The 1975? Were they working on new material? But it of course it was all a big publicity stunt in order to announce that they were refreshing their sound.
‘Love Me’ is the first single from the forthcoming LP ‘I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It“ The quantity of tracks are almost as ridiculous as the album title itself. Will it even fit on the cover?
The 1975 were looking to change their identity but have they been successful with this new single? If anything they have just added fuel to the pop epidemic, included some 80’s guitar riffs and forgotten their indie roots. Its funky and contagious so even if you don’t like it you soon will.
‘Love Me’ come across a little narcissistic so much so it seems they are trying convince themselves, as well as there fans, that they are moving in the right direction.
Even though ‘Love Me’ is catchy as hell it will soon grate on you. I’m sorry boys, I’m not convinced yet.
What do you think?
