The 1975 Get Weird With Drug-Dusted ‘M.O.N.E.Y.’
Rising English band shares song from self-titled LP debut due in September
Manchester quartet the 1975 have been eliciting some dramatic responses from music fans on both sides of the pond and at at either end of the love-hate spectrum, but dramatic music will do that. Earlier this month we heard singer-guitarist Matthew Healy bend his heart-skewering coo to an acoustic rendition of his band’s breakthrough song, “Chocolate.”
Now we’ve got a new share from the September 3 eponymous album to consider — “M.O.N.E.Y.,” in which the often polished-sounding act goes full-tilt Peter Gabriel electronic-soul wildout. Lyrically, the 1975 stick to their rakish topical fodder, telling a poetically compelling story of one man’s night out on the town — a hot mess of a dude who ingests various intoxicants and breaks a bunch of shit (including his own skin) on a mission to oblivion.
