Rating: ★★★★

Few, if any, do oddball pop better than Everything Everything. On their fourth full-length, they’re not about to let that crown slip. From the opening bombast of ‘Night Of The Long Knives’, through the pulsing dark heart of lead single ‘Can’t Do’, this is a band who find the obtuse, angular points and set them sharp side out as they ram the barricades of mainstream attention.

It’s a formula that results in some of the freshest, most exciting sounds imaginable - and while ‘A Fever Dream’ may see them evolving rather than setting light to their previous rulebook, it’s no less exciting for it. The blasting chorus of ‘Desire’, the bait and switch of ‘Run The Numbers’ - the many and varied strands of Everything Everything remain brilliantly weird. Stephen Ackroyd

The 1975: Modern life is rubbish?

The 1975 have just released their third album, ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’. A staggering work of shifting expectations, it’s quite probably their masterpiece. To find out more, Dork headed round to frontman Matty Healy’s house to quiz him on what life’s currently like in the most exciting band on the planet.
