文字回顧 Concert Review

…These British musicians are always the experts in stealing young girls’ hearts with their amiable synth / electronic pop rock composition, youth celebration lyrics and indulgent behaviors. In The 1975’s recent performance, Healy frequently brings along his latest stage companion with him – a bottle of wine. No matter if the alcohol actually boosts his stage performance or is just part of his wild bad boy image, it does enhance the overall living-in-the-moment, party-esque atmosphere…

……這幾個英國男孩一向擅於以其流行電子搖滾音樂、歌頌青春的歌詞和放縱表現來偷取少女的心。 – 在近年 The 1975 的表演中,Matt 經常帶著一瓶酒邊喝邊唱,簡直是他的新舞台伙伴。無論酒精能否提高舞台表演,或者只是他野性壞孩子形象的一部分,它確實提升了那個活在當下、忘我派對的氣氛……
