Wildcard (week 23):
The 1975 – Give Yourself A Try

At the start of their career, Manchester band The 1975 scored mainly with singles who’s titles had only one word in it: Chocolate, Sex and Girls, for instance. With the title of their second album, they explored the other end of the spectrum: I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It was the album with the longest title ever to reach #1 in the United States. It spawned two powerplays (now: Wildcards) in my then radio show Carte Blanche: Love Me and She’s American.

After releasing a cover of Sade’s By Your Side and a live album in 2017, The 1975 come up with a third long player in October. Another one with a great title: A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships. And that’s not all: the follow-up has been announced already as well: Notes On A Conditional Form is planned for May 2019.

But first things first. Give Yourself A Try is the first taster off the band’s upcoming album. A haunting track, built around a fuzzy guitar melody that’s backed with a beat straight out of a drum machine. I’ve chosen this high energy pop tune as The 1975’s third Carte Blanche Music Wildcard, meaning it features here prominently this week.
