The 1975 – The City

Screen shot 2013-04-28 at 9.50.45 PM

New British band The 1975 have been hard at work recently, having released three EP’s to date with their fourth, IV out on May 20th. I’ve been meaning to share the delectable track “Chocolate” from their latest EP Music for Cars for some time, however it was their sexy new video for “The City” that finally impelled me to pull the trigger on the post. Props to the artistic director as the vid features some stunning overlaid shots of the urban cityscape.

Also in the works is the group’s first full length album, which will be co-produced by Mike Crossey, the producer behind the Arctic Monkeys, Foals, and Ben Howard. The 1975 is getting ready to kick off a US tour with headliner The Neighbourhood — in my hometown of Tulsa no less (huzzah!) — on June 4th. More tour dates listed below.

The Neighbourhood – Alleyways

The+Neighbourhood+1

The Neighbourhood is a new alt-pop group out of California that has been embraced by the indiesphere after releasing a succession of singles in anticipation of their April 23rd drop of debut LP, I Love You.

And while I’m not sure I would requite the album’s sentiment, I am wildly in-like with their song “Alleyways” (shit gets real at 0:52 in the bridge). If you’re intrigued and want to hear more, the album can be streamed in its entirety via Rolling Stone here.

*Update: The Neighbourhood will be embarking on a US tour with The 1975 June 4th!
