In two sleeps time, I'm off to Sydney for the Sydney Vegan Expo on Sunday and to see one of my favourite bands, The 1975 at the (sold-out) Enmore Wednesday night.

I first discovered The 1975 when I found a wonderful article by Brad Nelson on my favourite band Haim (see last week's Music Monday) and The 1975 - especially in regards to their percussive sounds and their 80s influences.

I first saw and heard their song, Sex (EP version) and I was hooked:

I immersed myself in all of their wonderfully shot black and white visual representations of their songs, including Chocolate:

and The City:

Then this black and white world was turned upside down with the wonderfully colourful pop of Girls:

I love this song and the video - it's very tongue-in-cheek and such a contrast to their previous visuals.

As well as listening to Haim pretty much everyday, I do the same with The 1975. If you know any music that's similar to these bands, please let me know!

It's not just the 80s-influences and percussive sound of The 1975 that I adore, it's also their whole marketing. Their Tumblr-style website, their arty/B&W photos and videos, their posting style etc.

This year they once again, released some new black and white music videos. Starting with another favourite, Settle Down:

Followed up a few months ago, with the full colour, Bonnie and Clyde styled, Robbers:

These guys from Manchester, UK are quite well known back in their home country, but only now are more people knowing of them, especially in Australia.

I really hope you have discovered some new music and I hope you love this band as much as I do. Can't wait for the show Wednesday night!
