HAVING generated phenomenal word of mouth on the summer festival circuit, British indie darlings The 1975's Cork show on Wednesday, February 19 at 8pm has been moved from The Pavilion to The Savoy, Patrick St, to accommodate the overwhelming demand for tickets.
Described by Nylon as "a special band" armed with what online music bible Pitchfork describes as "born-ready anthems," The 1975 had a hugely successful 2013 and hit international headlines, including the Guardian newspaper who said that "their songs are ridiculously catchy ... they'll be heard everywhere this year." They recently embarked on a support slot across Europe with Two Door Cinema Club, played a clutch of triumphant shows at SXSW and had a Top 20 hit with "Chocolate" - the crossover hit of 2013.
The 1975 have released three acclaimed EPs so far, "Facedown", "Sex" and "Music For Cars" and their songs have had over 1.5 million plays on Soundcloud.
Though they formed as a punk band whilst still at school, there's no straitjacket to their current sound, which veers between brooding art rock, crisp electronica, dancefloor R&B, helium hip-hop, shimmering balladry and 80s gloss pop.
"Our record will be everything that we are. It is the sum of our combined experiences," leadman Matthew Healy said.
Tickets €17.50 including booking fee from Pavilion Bar, Plugd Records and online at Tickets.ie and Ticketmaster.ie.
