The 1975 have released their very 80’s influenced music video for their latest track Love Me.
From the style of music and the way Matt Healy sings, to the way it’s been shot it feels as though you’re watching a video from Kiss or Van Halen.
The beginning riff, which carries on throughout the song, combined with the electro sounds is what catches you off guard, and, if the song was a person, would make you do a double take to see if this really is The 1975.
Whilst obviously different to their previous material, there is still The 1975 oozing from the song from every lyric.
Speaking about the track, Healy said to Gigwise: “We wanted to capture the neon-hued enthralling acquisition of success and excess, the screaming momentum, the sexy daze.”
The band are going hard, and definitely not going home, to immerse themselves in the 80’s and are wearing fitted blazers with shirts and looking very glam rock.
Front man Matt Healy has even donned leather pants and colourful eye shadow, whilst leaving his shirt at home, and is owning the stage like the 80’s lead singer he was born to be.
Directed by Diane Martel, who brought us the music videos for Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines and Miley Cyrus’ We Can’t Stop, there was never a doubt that this music video would be anything but extravagant.
Check out the video below and let us know if you’re feeling the 80’s vibe as much as we are.
