You can dance Matty's dance in The 1975's new video for 'Sincerity Is Scary'

Dancing. We don't mean to reduce the secret to being A Bloody Good Pop Star down to one single element - because both haircuts and shoes exist - but dancing is Important.

That's why, in Matty Healy's quest to becoming the nexus pop star of his generation, The 1975's new video to 'Sincerity Is Scary' is important. Like a mix between the white rabbit from Alice in Wonderland and Fred Astaire, our hero prances his way through the Warren Fu (Daft Punk, The Weeknd, The Strokes) directed clip like a seasoned Hollywood pro.

Bonus points for the No Rome cameo, too.

With a winningly likeable smile and a spring in his step, it's the latest step on the road to new album 'A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships', which is set to drop next Friday, 30th November via Dirty Hit.

Announced earlier today as headliners for next summer's Reading & Leeds festivals, with a UK arena tour planned for early in 2019, and a fourth full-length 'Notes On A Conditional Form' to follow, The 1975's quest to be the most interesting band on the planet continues apace. If you want some evidence, check out our five star review of 'A Brief Inquiry...' here. We promise, we're not over cooking this one. It's remarkable.

You can check out the video for The 1975's 'Sincerity Is Scary' below, and keep your eyes peeled for something else special from the band Really Very Soon Indeed.

The Murder Capital are a band that arrived with expectation. Before their first track dropped, word of mouth had already begun to spread about five men from Dublin kicking up a fuss.

Feelin' hypersonic: Sam Fender

Sam Fender is a man on a mission. Already beating current ‘biggest noise on the block’ Lewis Capaldi to a Brit Award, as his debut album nears its much-anticipated arrival, the sky really is the limit for an artist not short of stuff to say.

Friendly Fires: Can't wait forever

It’s over eight years since Friendly Fires released their last album, but - after a prolonged period away - they’re finally back on the dancefloor with the shimmering ‘Inflorescent’.
