The 1975 have just made a triumphant return with their brand new single, ‘Give Yourself A Try’.

Taken from their upcoming third album, A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships (originally titled Music For Cars, the band are now using this as the moniker for this period of the band’s career, with a second album, Notes On A Conditional Form, already in the pipeline for May 2019), the song is set to kick off the band’s new era with a bang.

The track is much more subtle than some of their more straight-up pop tunes like The Sound and ‘Girls’ but has a rather ‘Chocolate’ feel to it; could this album see the band return to the sound of their debut?

I particularly like their interesting take on the world and certain aspects of it, throughout the verses, particularly the part about, ‘And what would you say to your younger self?’ – it’s a great moment in the song. Equally, whilst it’s not an instant pop anthem, the chorus is majorly catchy and I’ve found myself singing it loads already!

The music video is pretty funky too with it’s split-screen and trippy effects. I particularly love Matty’s dancing and new orange hair (is it just me or is there something a bit My Chemical Romance about it?!) and the clear guitars and drums used by the rest of the band.

This is certainly an exciting new era for the band and I can’t wait to hear their next single, and the rest of the album.

What are your thoughts of the new single from the band? Do you like the direction of their new era? Are you excited about the new album? Got a #FeelGoodFriday track to recommend us? Please leave your thoughts or song suggestions in a comment or via social media.

#FeelGoodFriday: The 1975 – ‘Chocolate’

The 1975 Banner

The 1975 are incredible; there’s no two ways about it!

The band (consisting of Matthew Healy, Adam Hann, George Daniel and Ross MacDonald) first caught my attention when they released their single, ‘The City’ and then reaffirmed my love for them, when they followed it up with this beautiful song, ‘Chocolate’.

This song is crafted to perfection with its catchy pop-rock/indie sound; it is pop and rock, merged at its best.

The 1975 recently had fans worrying about their demise, with their clever release of a cryptic comic, suggesting they were no more…however, if you read between the lines, they were talking about a change of image and hinted at a potential new album!

They then returned, around 24 hours later, with the following comic, confirming that they were bringing about a change to their current style, and informed their adoring fans (much to their relief) that they were going to go on tour around the UK again!

I hope you love this song as much as I do and please share this on your media accounts 🙂
