Track of the Day: The 1975 - Haunt // Bed

The 1975 have today released the stream of their second single 'Haunt // Bed', from the band's upcoming EP IV, which is coming out through Dirty Hit (Polydoor in the UK) on May 20th.
After slowly building upon the success of their previous EPs Facedown, Sex, and Music For Cars, The 1975 became a household name with the staggering success of their single 'Chocolate' (taken from the latter), which received widespread airplay, topping at number 19 in the UK charts.
On 'Haunt // Bed' the band have taken on a more reserved, lo-fi sound; coupling pop melodies with glistening production. Healy's vocals are hidden deeper within the mix - used like a more conventional instrument - layered behind a wall of electronic harmonies and a spattering of rhymic beats, making this the perfect stripped back pop song. 
With the band’s May UK tour already sold out (including landmark shows at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire and Manchester’s The Ritz) it's looking like 2013 is going to be a huge year for the Manchester four-piece.
