B-Side Find: “Me” – The 1975

by: Kyle Smart

I will admit, I am not the biggest fan of The 1975. For whatever reason, in that whole “Take them or leave them” bit, I would probably leave them. They don’t stand out to me. Difficult to understand what the lead singer is trying to say, and just the overall grimy feeling to their style and appearance, they really are not my cup of tea. But don’t tell my girlfriend that, she loves them.

Imagine my surprise when she sends me a link to this B-Side from one of their many EPs and tells me “I think you will like this more than their other stuff.” Skeptical as I am, I give it a listen, and yeah, I love this song. This deep 80s influence with painfully sad lyrics, creates a beautiful track that I wish I had heard on the album. If The 1975 had more tracks like this, I may grow to like them more.
