You know what they say: there’s nothing like some good ole’ retro love! Or maybe we just made that up. The 1975 have released their nostalgic new video for “Me & You Together Song” that feels like it’s ripped right out of 1999. Its sole mission is to make you smile and believe in true love again. So do you?
It’s impossible not to adore “Me & You Together Song”‘s warmth and good energy. If this song could travel back in time, it’d be featured in the American Pie soundtrack and countless other turn-of-the-century romantic comedies. So, wisely, the video matches this old-school vibe, following Matty Healy and the lads as they rock an old’ school party to shreds. There must be mistletoe everywhere because, all around them, lips lock as strangers get to know each other extremely well.
We follow so many couples’s trips into romantic bliss. One set bust into an occupied room and race to rip each other’s clothes off with wide grins on their faces, eager to grow even closer to one another. Two teens stare at each other in the midst of the party, too afraid to talk to each other, and eventually finds themselves inside of another room, kissing and exploring the weird locale around them. Everyone’s so adorably infatuated that it feels like a dream world, one that you wouldn’t want to wake up from. Was this really what Valentine’s Day looked like in 1999?
The 1975 released “Me & You Together Song” back in January when they revealed that their forthcoming LP, Notes on a Conditional Form, would come out on April 24 after being pushed back. It will also feature “Frail State of Mind,” “People,” and their self-titled song that features climate change activist Greta Thunberg. Shortly after the album’s release, they will be heading out on tour.
