The 1975 burst on to the scene in 2012 and the band have certainly come on leaps and bounds since then.

The foursome strutted on to the stage and were met by a roar from the sell-out crowd.

Watching the group at a packed out Bridlington Spa one thing became instantly clear; their popularity among teenagers is unparalleled.

They opened with their new single Love Me which was accompanied by a dramatic light show which really set the mood for the rest of the show.

The band already had a string of punchy singles from their debut self-titled album released in 2013 and they did not fail to deliver.

The 1975’s enigmatic lead singer and guitarist Matthew Healy was enjoying his night with him visible to smoking and having a number of glasses of red wine throughout the performance.

For every nod of the head or shout of ‘how are you Bridlington?’ the room erupted into rapture. He even had the time to make one girl’s night by jumping down off stage to give her a big hug.

With their new album due to be released in February, there was an unknown quantity to a portion of the night.

But the indie rock band proved that they could live up to expectations from their first album and if this preview is anything to go by, it’s going to be a cracker.

The band have a string of punchy singles from their first album such as The City, Girls and Heart Out and following an encore they finished with their two biggest hits of Chocolate and Sex which had the crowd in full voice.

The skill set within this band is worth noting, from exquisite vocals, lead guitar, base, keyboards, saxophone solos and drummers on a pedestal they gave a really engaging performance.

The band are still in their early days but if they continue with the momentum they have gathered so far then the future is very bright for them indeed.
