Images & Words: The 1975, “People”

The 1975
“People”
Notes on a Conditional Form (out 02.22.20 on Dirty Hit)
The Used, Head Automatica/Glassjaw, Primal Scream, Marilyn Manson, Blur, The Refused. And that’s only six of the roughly 600 random bands that the new 1975 track brings to mind. And somehow, just like mother-fucking always, they pull it off.

“People” is easily the most ferocious ever track from the Mancunians. Opening with crashing, driving toms, Matty Healy smears his vocals all over the place, screaming manically about who we are and why we’re fucked. The track does a wonderful job of fusing Healy’s love of (mostly) American (scr)e(a)mo and swaggering Brit Pop, balancing them to perfection and finding their shared spirit. Though I’m not sure I need an entire album of #mattyrage, “People” is yet another thrilling reminder that these four guys are capable of doing just about anything… except being boring.
