Song: I'm In Love With You (Live on SNL)
Artist: The 1975
Album: Being Funny in a Foreign Language
Sketch-wise, SNL wasn't anything to write home about last week (it was great to see Fred, but there was not enough Sarah!!!), but musically it was no bias whatsoever, the best episode of the season. The 1975 (arguably my favorite band) fucking crushed it (so much so that a live version of I'm In Love With You is SOD for the second time in a month). Their live performances sound just as good, if not better than the studio versions. I've loved watching these guys grow since I first heard them in 2013. It's great to see them all so happy (especially Matty). Thank heavens they didn't play "Part of the Band." They truly are at their very best and only getting better!
The 1975 are far from unknown, but it's crazy to me that none of the members have their own Wikipedia pages; Matty Healy 1000% should. Obligatory reminder: all four core members have been friends since grade school and started the band as teens. That is soooo fucking cool.
