Rdio Australia is excited to announce the first instalment of Rdio Sessions – a new series of live and intimate recordings available exclusively on Rdio. Championing both up-and-coming and established artists, Rdio Sessions will showcase the hottest acts across various genres in ways that fans have never heard before. The first act to be launched as part of Australia’s Rdio Sessions is UK indie-rock quartet, The 1975.
Already dubbed one of 2014’s biggest break out groups, The 1975 have taken music fans by storm this year, playing 400 shows globally in 2014 including powerful performances at Splendour In The Grass and various side shows. As part of their live Rdio Sessions recorded in Sydney earlier this year, the Brit-rockers have performed three stunning acoustic renditions of fan favourites “Chocolate”, “Sex” and “Is There Somebody Who Can Watch You”.
Throughout the recording, the group’s signature sound was stripped back to produce a raw, yet beautifully honest and unadulterated recording, unheard by fans – until now. Lead singer, Matt Healy’s haunting vocals are sure to impress new and existing fans who will be pleased to know that the band will be returning to Australian shores in 2015 for a national tour.
The 1975’s exclusive Rdio Sessions & 30 million other tracks are available to listen now on www.rdio.com
