They have been compared to Tom Petty, Uncle Tupelo, and according to Leon House (SIAS Review) their song 'Camera Shy' 'sounded good' and reminded him of an Alt-Country version of the Foo Fighters. 1971 forge through powerful Americana songs that often hold melodic melodies and impressive three-part harmonies as the core element. Just beneath the surface of musicianship always lies a story being told. Each song is a crafted tale that would seem familiar to almost anyone's life. The topics range from love, loneliness, death, and longing, to substance abuse, eternal life, and occupational hazards! At a live show 1971 hold your attention as they perform an emotional balled followed by an adrenaline filled Americana/Folk anthem reminiscent of old-timey gospel. Their live act is engaging as they constantly switch instruments and add a different dimension to each song. With intelligent song writing and unusual arrangements, 1971 often leave the listener craving more, of this traditional sounding but forward thinking, truly modern music!
