The 1975

The 1975, the pop rock Manchester quartet, continue to push the boundaries.

The opening track of their latest (4th) album Notes on a Conditional Form is simply entitled “The 1975” and is a call to arms from Greta Thunberg.

Yes, we are in the midst of a pandemic but as the virus eases we still face the destruction of our planet. We must act now or witness a disaster so much worse than Covid-19.

Ben Watt

Ben Watt, DJ, producer and one-half of the duo Everything But the Girl, also writes commanding songs as a solo artist as heard on “Figures in the Landscape”, so pertinent during these trying times.

In his own words: “I wrote it in a period of personal crisis and political upheaval. The random nature of both can leave you feeling insignificant, lacking agency in the world, but in the end I guess you have a simple choice: to get up and celebrate what you have, or get out and take issue with it.”
