 New Music: The 1975   Head.Cars.Bending (CoS Premiere)

Rising British synth-poppers The 1975 are set to complete their EP trilogy on March 5th with the release of Music For Cars via Vagrant Records. The Internet’s first taste off the Sex followup came with the loose and dreamy “Chocolate”, a song that gets those fingers tapping on the steering wheel and that head bobbing right along.

The second single from the EP is a different car ride entirely. On the mellower “Head.Cars.Bending”, the sun is setting, and one hand is gripping the wheel while the other pushes fingers through strands of hair. Skittering instrumentation and a profusion of electronics recall Purity Ring, though Matthew Healy’s vocals on the bridge are straight dancefloor R&B. Stream it below.

The 1975 will be supporting their EP trilogy (Facedown being the first entry) with an appearance at South by Southwest and their first tour of the U.S. this March. Check out their itinerary below.
