With a new tour announced and a new album Notes On A Conditional Form coming in April, it seems like you can’t slow down The 1975. With all of that information, the band has just released a new single and video for “The Birthday Party,” and should clue fans in on what the album could be when it gets released.
The song has this soft underpinning that lingers throughout. The mix of meandering pace and easy going tone work within what the band has become known for. While the video feels like something from an artificial reality based world, the song has plenty of tenderness while still keeping the band’s rock sound in tact. It’s a new direction in some ways while never deterring from their overall sound.
The video can be streamed above or on YouTube. The song can be streamed in all streaming sites. Notes On A Conditional Form can be preordered directly from Dirty Hit Records in multiple bundles and formats ahead of its April 24 release. The 1975 is on tour tomorrow at The 02 in London, UK until November 01 at Oslo Spektrum Arena in Oslo, Norway. Their complete tour schedule is available here.
