"We’re from Manchester. A year ago we couldn’t fill a room with 50 people in our home town. Now we’ve sold out two nights in San Francisco."

Anonymous asked: can you say all the meanings for all the songs on their most recent album?


of course music translates differently into everyones lives (which is the most incredible thing about it) but these are just bits and pieces of what they have mentioned since the release as far as what they had in mind while writing it goes xxxxx

  1. The 1975 // the intro to the album and the band
  2. The City // they don’t really know what it’s about? haha the second verse I think was written on a piece of paper matty found in his pocket one morning after a night out and he had no recollection of what it meant or why he wrote it down but it fit perfectly with the music they had for it already so yeah
  3. M.O.N.E.Y. // drugs
  4. Chocolate // smoking weed/conflicts with authority abusing their power in a small town
  5. Sex // “prudish 17 year old girls”
  6. Talk! // maybe telling someone or society that they’re loud?
  7. An Encounter // one of their awesome instrumental songs
  8. Heart Out // part of it is a what matty saw in himself like getting wrapped up in a lot of drugs and seeking out sex and stuff 
  9. Settle Down // matty and one of his ex-girlfriends dancing to michael jackson
  10. Robbers // a “toxic relationship” where both people need to let go and move on but keep finding excuses to stay together
  11. Girls // girls
  12. 12 // another awesome instrumental song
  13. She Way Out // “this song’s about girls who can’t dance very well”
  14. Menswear // a wedding
  15. Pressure // growing up with well-known parents and people always recognizing him and his family
  16. Is There Somebody Who Can Watch You // feeling guilty and sad about leaving his little brother while he is away on tour

glitterist asked: god your text post about the cd signing of the 1975 pretty much sums up my experience when they came to my country i was probably the only one singing my head off and i kept hearing loads of other girls say that they only wanted to see matty anyway jesus the amount of times i wanted to chop peoples' hairs off i can't even ughhhh and the fact that those same girls got to meet them and everything while i didn't it's not fair at all :(

Oh my god I know, I was so frustrated the entire time because no one knew anything about their music or the band and it sucked because there was only a limited number of people who were allowed into the signing and those girls took the spots of actual fans who wanted to meet them
