"Buzz-band is a term that has been fluttering around the Internet for quite some time now. It's meaning is pretty straightforward: it is an underground indie band, formerly unknown, that comes out with a single worthy of Internet hype. That is why I disagree with labeling the recent indie Internet phenom, The Neighbourhood, as buzzworthy; they are clearly destined for so much more.
The band is also exceptionally mysterious. It's a quintet based out of LA, with Rutherford as the frontman. However, I couldn't tell you who plays what instrument. Their website doesn't even have any biographical information. The shroud of mystery surrounding them is part of the reason people like them so much, they're not out there for fame and glory—yet—they're just producing great tracks, (and all of these tracks are available FREE online…just keep reading). Their mysteriousness also perfectly parallels with the way they blend the genres of rock, R&B, and folk in a way only an indie band can.
Their 5-track EP is available for free download on their website. All the tracks are well worth listening to again and again." --Candor News
"You probably know The 1975 from their latest single 'Sex'. The song's full of swirling hooks, lustful, sleazy lyrics and vocals that carry an edge of charm with them. There's no denying 'Sex' is an anthem you can't help but sing along to. Yet, The 1975 aren't just a one hit wonder. Their second EP, with the same name, hosts a collection of sounds venturing away from just guitar tracks to electronic indie pop.
