The 1975 Concert

The 1975 Concert

 

     I don’t think I’ve found a band that has changed my perception of life so much as The 1975. Yes, I’m aware it’s totally cliché to say that a band has changed your life, saved you, etc., but I mean this with my whole soul. As soon as these four (five if you count their incredible new saxophone player) men stepped into my life, it was all over from there.

     On December 5th, I had the opportunity to see them play for the second time, this time at the Fillmore. With their new album I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It coming out this February, this concert was a mix of their old music with some of the new songs on the album. Their sound is inspired by Michael Jackson, Boyz II Men, Peter Gabriel, etc., giving it a fun, pop, ‘80s vibe. While their first album had the classic aesthetic of black and white, their new album is a mix of bright pinks, purples, and blues, completing their revolutionized sound and look.

     The concert was absolutely incredible, and anyone who has been to any artist’s concert knows how much they bring people together. The 1975 seeks to create something new, but it’s not to impress the fans, or really, have anything to do with them; they do it for themselves, and for the beautiful thing that is creating music, creating art. If you can appreciate art, and music, and a variety of cultures being brought together, then The 1975 is absolutely, 100% for you.
