Following their massive SNL performance slot and those comments about One Direction's lack of, um, 'artistic integrity' (we're staying out of this); The 1975 lads have hit up the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge to give us their own twist on - you guessed it - Justin Bieber's 'Sorry.' Hoorah.

After Nick Jonas 'et al' gave a dramatic reading of the track for Vanity Fair, Matty Healy and co. joined Clara Amfo to perform their new single 'The Sound' and Justin's absolute jam.

Now we don't use the word 'funky' much round these parts for fear of sounding like some 45-year-old auntie, but the boys' cover is genuinely funky af. Also JAZZY.

Proving they're by no means afraid of a good pop song (oh we love it when cool kids appreciate pop), The 1975 put a jazz-funk twist on el Biebo with synths all over the shop and some super smooth guitar chords. Oh, and a saxophone since this is The 1975 we're on about here.

They even managed to incorporate a little sample of some Bieber spoken word, which is just inspired if you ask us. Wanna judge for yourself? Here you go, honey:


Here's 'The Sound,' too. Also very good.

What d'ya make of the boys' cover, then? Give us a tweet over @sugarscape or drop a comment in the box below, please and a-thaaank you. Gracias.
