listen to a new song from the 1975

with a carefully-crafted visual aesthetic and an aurally accessible one, the 1975 is just one of the latest bands to bring an alternative image to the top 40 stage.  but to dismiss their musicianship in light of their overwhelming popularity would be short-sighted; the manchester quartet was recently tapped by zane lowe for his recreation of the drive soundtrack, and their final product is something of note.  “medicine” is an atmospheric slow-burner, with poignant lyricism and gently-coaxed guitar feedback that yields the closest the 1975 will ever come to approaching shoegaze.  take a listen below.
