Indie pop superstars The 1975 poke fun at some of their biggest criticisms in a new music video for their single ‘The Sound’, which features on their new album ‘I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It’ released today (26th February).
The video sees the band performing live inside a glass box with neon pink lighting surrounding them, which has become a part of their live shows.
It all sounds standard for a music video, however, as the video progresses, audience members gradually approach closer to the band, looking displeased with the performance, and a series of critiques aimed at the band flash up on the screen. The critiques include ‘Unconvincing emo lyrics’, ‘Punch-your-TV obnoxious’ and ‘Terrible high-pitched vocals’.
Watch the video above.
‘I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It’ is out now via Dirty Hit/Interscope/Polydor/Vagrant.
