‘UGH!’ is the latest track from UK band The 1975, taken from their upcoming album I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It. The song premiered as Zane Lowe’s World Record on Beats 1 Radio on Thursday, December 10th, 2015.
This track unlike Love Me, deals with slightly darker themes and feels a bit more personal. The song is about ones failed efforts to deal with their addiction and the negative effects the subtance has on their life – “And you’re the only thing that’s going on in my mind. Taking over my life a second time”
The darks lyrics are beautifully covered with 70’s pop infused beats, making the song slightly more lighthearted. UGH! expresses the bands songwriting ability to not only write songs demeaning pop culture, but to also branch out and write songs that encompass thought-provoking lyrics.
This is definitely one of my favourite releases from the new album, it really showcases how the 1975 have grown and matured as a band. 2016 might be their biggest year yet!
I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It will be released on Friday, February 26, 2016.
