Facedown is the debut extended play by English rock band the 1975 released on 6 August 2012 through Dirty Hit.[1] It is the debut of four EPs released before the band's self-titled debut.

Recording[edit]

The release of the EP in August 2012 saw the band's first UK airplay on national radio with lead track "The City", which featured as part of a BBC Introducing show with Huw Stephens on BBC Radio 1.[2]

The EP's sound was noted as "reverb-soaked guitars and emotive vocals with a distinct twang."[3]
