Sincerity is Scary

by Andrew MacGregor

The 1975: “Sincerity is Scary” - 4 mins 01s

Even a fall down a manhole isn't enough to put Matty Healy off his stride in this well-choreographed promo for The 1975's ‘Sincerity is Scary'. Drawing from classic musicals and the band's own established lore, director Warren Fu delivers an uptempo dance number as a rise-and-shine Healy hits the streets.

While the frontman's bunny-eared hat may be a sartorial misstep, Healy underlines his charismatic pull as he draws passersby into his feel-good jaunt. Complementing the band's gosepl-tinged track, Wu's promo should also please fans with references to some of the group's recurring motifs.
