Video(s) of the Moment #1275: The 1975

By on Sunday, 28th July 2013 at 6:00 pm

I waited until the weekend to post the new video from The 1975 because it’s got explicit content. Then again, what else would you expect about a song that’s titled ‘Sex’, right? Yes, there’s exposed boobs and a bare bum. But I think the explicit content they’re referring to is, ironically, drug use. But the actual action is pretty tame compared to what you see in Hollywood movies.

The new video is quite different from the original one the band from Manchester had posted 9 months ago, which I’ve also embedded below. For one thing, the original has punchier sound, which I found very cool that many fans who have seen the new video have pointed out. Who said no-one was paying attention to the music? Well done, 1975 fandom! And the black and white presentation of the original video better matches the band’s ethos, or at least what we were presented with when we started writing about them last summer and I wrote this Bands to Watch. Time will tell if major label production will make or break them…

The single version of ‘Sex’ will be released on the 26th of August, one week ahead of their self-titled debut album release on Dirty Hit / Polydor on the 2nd of September.
