The 1975 dropped two new songs at the first show of their UK tour last night (15th February).
Opening the run at Nottingham's Motorpoint Arena, the band had previously promised there'd be new tasters of their forthcoming album 'Notes on a Conditional Form', which was originally intended to drop this coming Friday, 21st February.
Now pushed back to late April, there was still a significant presence for the second part of the 'Music For Cars' duology (yes, duology! - Ed). Alongside the already heard 'People', 'Me & You Together Song', 'Frail State of Mind' and NOACF version of the album's opening theme 'The 1975' were two entirely fresh songs.
'If You're Too Shy (Let Me Know)' is textbook The 1975 at their very best, all sax solos snd massive choruses. 'Guys', on the other hand, is a sentimental, slow burning ode from Matty to his band. Pass the hankies, Dear Reader. It's all got rather emotional.
It seems neither of these songs are what the band have been teasing over the weekend, via their weird-and-perhaps-maybe-wonderful mindshower.ai website. Speculation suggests that may be the much teased 'The Birthday Party', and could arrive at 6pm on Wendesday, when a countdown reaches zero.
