The 1975

When: Fri., June 17, 8 p.m. 2016

Combining the sonic meticulousness of Scritti Politti, the jittery guitars of seventies funk, the casual sexiness of Kick-era INXS, modern angst, and a few well-placed sax licks, The 1975 has provided a much-needed jolt to the pop-rock world in four years. On the new I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It, the band stretches its ambitions by balancing taut kiss-offs about celebrity culture with furtive shoegaze. It doesn’t always work, but the arena-sized bravado of frontman Matty Healy is admirable. —Maura Johnston
