This Manchester four-piece have been gigging the underground scene of their hometown for more than a decade. Having being championed from the likes of Huw Stephens and Zane Lowe after the release of their first EP Facedown in 2012, they secured their first UK Top 40 with Chocolate in March earlier this year.
With three acclaimed mixtapes to their name The 1975’s debut album is one of the most eagerly anticipated on the indie scene this year - not least due to recording with Foals and Arctic Monkeys producer Mike Crossey.
