Video: The 1975 – Girls

After a sensational rise to stardom this year, The 1975 have released the official music video for ‘Girls’.

Unlike their previous videos, the Manchester quartet gleefully take the piss out of themselves and the pop industry.

Frontman Matt Healy had this to say about the video:

“We found the whole idea of us being told what to do fascinating. The story of the band who suffer at the hands of a record label shortly after a delirious rise is a tale as old as time. So we kinda wanted to make a tongue in cheek video about it. Twinned with our love of 80’s pop, it’s innocence, grandiosity and conceptual ideas in music videos – we wanted to make a video about a record label’s attempt at enforced conformity.”
