Naming your band the 1975 seems hopelessly aspirational, as if imbuing it with the presence of a bygone era lends your music some kind of legitimacy. It also seems like an unfortunate misdirection, as the music the Manchester band makes is actually drippy, slightly peppy, radio-designed porridge that is very much 2013's state-of-the-art: a weird and unsatisfying blend of pop, rock, and slick, electronic-enhanced production. The names of 1975's two biggest singles so far are "Chocolate" and "Sex"—no doubt trying to evoke more positive associations—but the band's moniker aside, this is of-the-moment dreck we'll be mortified by in a few short years.
