If you need a sugary does of pop, look no further than The 1975’s “Chocolate”.  Some vocalists hide their accents when they sing but Manchester’s Matthew Healy, who wears it proudly. In fact, it’s part of what makes this song so great. (especially the way he says “petticoat”, so very English)

Also, I read somewhere that filmmaker John Hughes was a big influence on Healy and somehow that makes perfect sense with this bouncy track.

The 1975 – Chocolate by the1975

The band has two EPs under their belt with their latest, “Music for Cars”, out today.  Their music is definitely bold (check out previous single “Sex”) and something tells me this band is destined for success. They are on my hot list for SXSW and I can’t wait to check them out live.

    Nice post. Music is one of the major stuffs which an internet user downloads usually, whether he may be a normal user of an extensive one. But in the crowd of the websites offering music downloads, they forget to use the sites which allow free music downloads legally. In modern era, as music is free and available on fingertips, one can only go for free music downloads legally at skymus.net.

    Free mp3 downloads
