The band, The 1975 has released their new album and their new 80’s sound is climbing the charts.

“I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it” holds many different moods, sounds and vibes in its’ 80s pop feel. With lengthy interludes, turn-of-the decade sound and a precise pop sound, this album is a personal favorite.

In comparison to their freshman album, “1975,” which had much more of a rock sound, ‘I like it when you sleep,” landed a spot as number one on the Billboard Top 200 in the first week of being released. This topped Adele’s “25” and Rihanna’s “ANTI”. The album has sold 98,000 copies in its first week and the bands hit song “Love Me” has made an impact as well.

The “Love Me” video has already reached over 6 million views in the four months it has been out and The 1975  also did a live performance on Saturday Night Live on Feb. 9.

The album in its entirety is a love story. The track list seems to be a progression of a relationship in which Matty Healy, the lead singer, goes through the ups and down of a relationship. With many complications near the beginning with songs such as “Love Me” and “UGH!”, the album continues to play out with a more mellow side of the relationship.

Songs such as “A Change of Heart” and “If I Believe You” sound more sorrowful and as if Matty is coming to a conclusion to move on. Near the end of the album, the relationship embodied by these songs seems to come to a resolution or happy ending with “She Lays Down.”

All in all, “I like it when you sleep” has made an impact on the music scene with a throwback to the 80s and a milestone for The 1975.
