British guitar music seems to be shunned further and further from the mainstream.
Yet it needed be like that. The 1975 released their debut album in September, and promptly flew into the charts at number one.
Since then, the band have completed a sold out UK with their self-titled LP going on to sell in excess of 170,000 copies.
Opening the New Year in style, The 1975 are looking forward to another series of tour dates and a special show at London's historic Royal Albert Hall.
New single 'Settle Down' arrives on February 24th, and comes equipped with a stylishly shot video.
Black and white, it features a young boy with a mysterious secret.
Watch it now.
