The 1975 are a Manchester art-pop quartet. The four-piece make outsider anthems where alt.rock explosions meet electro-pop grooves. Their year so far has been memorable as their ambition is high. They recently embarked on a support slot across Europe with Two Door Cinema Club, played a clutch of triumphant shows at SXSW and had a Top 20 hit with "Chocolate", the indelible future-pop art-rock centrepiece of their "Music For Cars" EP. This success has set up The 1975 as one of the year’s breakthrough bands. Their headline May tour is sold out, as are two shows at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire and Manchester’s The Ritz in September.

Nina was just 16 years old when she began performing intimate shows across Edinburgh and Manchester and, with a budding interest in filmmaking, posted a selection ofher songson YouTube.
