29 Meh 2014 Pyramid Stage
The 1975 on the Pyramid stage
Sweet like chocolate
Manchester’s The 1975 have travelled further than most to get to the top of indie-pop pile. Ten years of underground gigs, mixtapes and cover songs saw them finally burst into the mainstream with the release of their single Sex, supported by Radio 1 and Zane Lowe. This was then followed by bigger success and daytime play of their track Chocolate in March 2013.
Their self-titled debut (recorded with the production team behind Foals and Arctic Monkeys) then went straight to No.1 last October following a summer of festivals, including a slot on the Other Stage at Glastonbury. Their chart-friendly synth pop hits have amassed a passionate following and it’s no surprise to see them back at Worthy Farm... on an even bigger stage.
