The 1975 Makes Connects Between Their New Songs and We Had No Idea.

The 1975 has been releasing new music since May of 2018, with their latest single “Sincerity is Scary” being released just hours ago, it is clear that their upcoming album “A Brief Inquiry to Online Relationships” will have a central theme of

being real and true to yourself while battling modern time situations like technology and politics. All of the previously released songs like “Give Yourself a Try”, “Love It If We Made It” “TOOTIMETOOTIMETOTIME” and “Sincerity is Scary” are all puzzle pieces that make up what The 1975 is trying to achieve on their new project.

 

 

 

The first release of four was “Give Yourself A Try’ which was released in late May of 2018. The song’s lyrics give the theme away, but it is basically discussing how to find yourself and grow confidence to be yourself. As Matty repetitively says “Give Yourself A Try” and other things like “and what would you say to your younger self?” throughout the song, the band seems to be pushing for individuality and confidence from their audience.

The drums and guitar are prominent throughout the entire song and showcase that the song is suppose to be empowering to find yourself before it is too late. This song relates to the central theme of being real and true to yourself while battling modern time situations by starting the journey of finding oneself

 

 

 

The next song released was “Love It If We Made It” in July of 2018, this song started a huge shock wave of political stance about the band, especially online. The song represents that once you find yourself you begin to express yourself and this song expresses the 1975 in many ways, but mainly politically.

Matty brings up things like Donald Trump, the heroin epidemic, Kanye West and Lil Peep. All of these topics and people have influenced society and created controversial topics around the globe before The 1975 brought them up. For The 1975, one of the biggest British pop bands to bring those things up in their song shows confidence and empowerment which occurs after finding yourself.

 

 

The next song that was released was “TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME” in August of 2018. This song is a very relatable song to most people who are active online or are in a relationship.

But the relationship to this song and the general theme is that social media and other SOME people get in the way of self discovery and self realization. The song itself is another upbeat song, but the lyrics have a deeper meaning that refers to struggle of a relationship with social media getting in the way. This is just another step in being real and finding yourself; avoiding obstacles and negative things and people.

 

 

The latest song released is “Sincerity is Scary” which was released in September of 2018. This song is almost like a confession and realization of one’s actions that were not realized before it also serves as a call out to be people who do the things sung by Matty. “Culture is to blame” is one of the first lyrics in the song,

this is a significant line because many people tend to blame culture or society for things they can do themselves. This relates to the theme because it shows that once someone is real with themselves, they can become self absorbed which can create issues. This song also represents how technology has taken over the individual based off of “TOOTIMESTOOTIMESTOOTIMES” which showed the exposure of technology and a relationship on someone.

 

There are many things that can go into the main theme of this album based off of the four songs released, but personally I think the theme is about being real with yourself and finding yourself especially in times like today were we have things like technology getting in the way of many things. All of the released songs are puzzle pieces that fit together to give us one central idea and train of thought and it will be complete on November 30th 2018.
