The guitar-led intro to The 1975’s new single ‘Girls’ has had me in knots trying to work out which shimmering Prince track it’s been ripped off from ( Still haven’t worked that one out) but that elusion gets broken when Matt Healy’s distinctive vocals open the track with his tales of adolescent dreams and the fairer sex; “I liked your face despite your nose, 17 and a half years old, I’m worrying about my brother finding out, Where’s the fun in doing what you’re told”
Putting the intro to one side ‘Girls’ is typical upbeat The 1975 with their brand of hook driven pop and promiscuous lyrics it’s made for radio (Probably why Zane Lowe likes to premiere them)
The 1975’s self-titled debut album is out now!
