Artist Summary: The 1975



The 1975 is an English pop-rock band formed in 2002 in Wilmslow, Cheshire. The band consists of lead vocalist, producer, and rhythm guitarist Matty Healy; lead guitarist Adam Hann; bassist Ross MacDonald; and drummer/producer George Daniel.


They are currently signed to Dirty Hit and Polydor Records and released their debut album self-titled "The 1975" on Sept. 2, 2013. The 1975's self-titled debut album debuted at No. 1 in the U.K. back in Sept. 2013.


"I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware of It" is the second studio album, released on Feb. 26, 2016. This album also debuted at No. 1 in the U.S for the first time. Honestly, this album was such a masterpiece, and my favorite songs of this album were "The Sound," "She's American," and "Somebody Else."



Healy told USA Today,

"Even having a No. 1 album in America is 'crazy ... We're not a band who's had chart success with our singles, so it's humbling, because it speaks volumes about how hardcore our fan base is."

On Nov. 30, 2018, they released their third album, titled "A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships." "Notes on a Conditional Form" was their fourth album and was released on May 22, 2020.


My favorite performance was their performance on "Late Night with Seth Meyers," back on Nov. 25, 2016, because they just had a very unique presence that was extremely captivating. I also think that it's one of their best performances, and it caught my attention when I first watched their performance.


Overall, "The 1975" is one of my favorite bands, and when I first started listening to them, their music captured my attention instantly. All their songs are just masterpieces, and their best album in my opinion is "I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware of It."
