The current hot property of the indie circuit delighted crowds in Glasgow on Monday night with a sold-out slot at Oran Mor.

Manchester-based band, The 1975 played a short but very sweet set taking the best bits of EPS; debut, “Facedown”, “Sex”, “Music For Cars” and recent release, “IV”. Frontman, Matthew Healy appeared confident in the spotlight, chatting and joking comfortably with punters between tracks.

Their synth-soaked sound combined with Healy’s haunting vocal is undoubtedly a winning formula, but a sometimes repetitive one making it difficult to differentiate between songs at points.

However, the crowd welcomed the majority of the material as if they were greeting an old friend; signature song, “Chocolate” was predictably saved to the end and whipped the crowd into a singalong frenzy with Healy barely audible above the madness. It seemed like the band were just getting started when the set was prematurely over; however, it provided the perfect taster of things to come for their already hard-core fans.

Fresh from supporting Muse on tour at Emirates Stadium in London last weekend, The 1975 are set to release their debut album in September, coinciding with yet another tour of the UK, and its one of the most anticipated releases of 2013.

Tickets for The 1975’s UK Tour in September are available now.
