The 1975, Bad Suns, Sir Sly

MARK STOCK
8 pm., Wednesday April 23 | $18.
Roseland Theater
8 NW 6th Ave.
 
[BRIT ROCK] It’s tough to fault a band of mid-20-somethings for writing songs with names like “Girls” and “Chocolate” that are, well, about precisely those things. But you can fault the Manchester quartet for sounding exactly like every other dance-rock act currently enjoying big-label money across the pond. The high-school girl in me will enjoy the 1975’s simple hooks and excessive crooning, while my other half will enjoy opener Sir Sly’s more reckless and inventive indie pop. The Los Angeles trio plays vocal-centric, breakdown-heavy synth rock akin to—but not entirely like—the Neighbourhood.
