The 1975

When: Sun., Nov. 30, 8 p.m. 2014

Visually handsome and vocally chirpy lads from Manchester, The 1975 belong to some heinous new wave whose direct influences maxed out with scores between 6 and 8 in the back of NME circa 2004. Claiming lofty reference points like Sigur Rós and Brian Eno in interviews, they clearly aspire to some sort of challenging art. For now, they’re unsatisfying pop/rock charlatans, not rough enough to ruffle or hooky enough to be an actual big deal, either. Certain Elton John singles, actually released during 1975, rock much harder. —Jeff Klingman
