Vagrant Records has certainly has been signing some interesting bands lately. Their latest addition is Manchester’s The 1975 and The four-piece will release the Sex EP on November 20th. You can hear a track from the EP here.
Following the release of The 1975’s acclaimed Facedown EP last month, comes an even darker and ambitious affair than their debut. Sex, out on November 20th on Vagrant Records in conjunction with Dirty Hit, encompasses the essence of the Manchester outﬁt’s anti-tribalist leanings and conﬁrms their stance as curators of culture and sound.
Opener ‘Intro/Set3’ is dominated by syncopated samples, glitchy beats and layered vocals, while ‘Undo’ displays heart-breaking R&B vocals and a production sensibility akin to that of Phil Spector within its wintry ambiance and melodic wall of sound.
The EP’s title track is a powerful electronica-tinged alt rock piece, with bright synthesizers and urgent vocals layered over grungy guitars and industrial drums, while ‘You’ takes its inﬂuence from ‘90’s shoegaze. The reverbdrenched secret track ‘Milk’ continues this aesthetic, one that suits The 1975 so well.
Set to hit the studio once more throughout October and November, The 1975’s debut album will be co-produced by the band and the award-winning Mike Crossey (Arctic Monkeys, Foals). With these two EPs already under their belts, the full-length promises to be an affair of enormous proportions.
