The town of Wilmslow in Cheshire, England, is perhaps the least rock 'n' roll place on the planet, yet somehow it spawned electro-rock act the 1975, a troupe of genre-bending dudes intent on infecting minds with catchy melodies buried under a mass of cool synths. Frontman Matthew Healy is a star in the making, the perfect blend of Marc Bolan glam androgyny and contemporary indie masculinity. Similarly, the band dips into the past just enough to add retro value to songs that sound very now. “Chocolate,” for example, is reminiscent of new-wave and post-punk favorites from the 1980s, from bands like Then Jericho and even Simple Minds, albeit with a modern twist. It’s a balancing act, but one that the 1975 accomplishes with deft precision. Wolf Alice and the Japanese House also play. By Brett Callwood
