Manchester quartet the 1975 moves up to Lincoln Hall on its second Stateside tour in support of new EP Music for Cars, which takes a kitchen-sink approach to arena-rock aspirations, incorporating everything from hazy atmospherics and emo hooks to catchy synth claps and brooding, booming drums. They hope to mean everything to every teenager. The final product lands in an unexpected ground between Bloc Party and One Direction.
