Catchy but instantly forgettable

The 1975 have done the unthinkable and produced a debut album that is both extremely catchy and instantly forgettable.

You’ll tap your foot to their jingly melodies, but once the disc stops spinning you’ll find it a challenge to recall anything you’ve heard. Their brand of disposable indie pop follows in the steps of ‘Where Are They Now’ bands like Menswear, Toploader and One Night Only. If you’re still keen on giving The 1975 a go, a good starting point is Chocolate. GC
