1975 playing at Red Rocks May 2nd
My girlfriend and I are way excited to see The 1975 at the famous Red Rocks amphitheater in Colorado! It is going to be an awesome show to see there especially! The 1975 are a British alternative rock band formed in Manchester. The group consists of Matthew Healy, Adam Hann, George Daniel, and Ross MacDonald. They have released four EPs, while their self-titled debut album was released on 2 September 2013 through Dirty Hit/Polydor. The album debuted at number 1 in the UK Albums Chart on 8 September 2013. The band has toured internationally. We have never seen them live before and are really looking forward to it! Scott Kerr of AllMusic wrote that the band combined “the dark and youthful themes of sex, love, and fear with ethereal alt-rock music.” Healy specifically cites Talking Heads, My Bloody Valentine, and Michael Jackson as musical influences; he states that his greatest influence is the oeuvre of filmmaker John Hughes. Their “melancholic” black and white visual aesthetic is juxtaposed with major keys and what the band calls “classic pop sensibilities.” Critics at Pitchfork have favourably compared them to The Big Pink. Sex EP was described by Paste as “equal parts ethereal and synth pop,” with “haunting” and “smooth” vocals. Their “mellow,” stripped down style was praised for its lack of “attention-grabbing production theatrics.” The sound of their debut album, The 1975, has been described as electropop, funk rock, indie pop, indie rock, pop, pop rock and rock. Our favorite type of music and our favorite amphitheater to see a great show! Make a mini vacation out of it and stay at the Arrowhead Manor Inn. Convenient to Red Rocks but with beautiful mountain views, private hot tubs and more!
