Why I Love: The 1975

Why I Love is a feature on my blog. This is where I share the things I am currently obsessing on and still obsessed with. Note that future posts are highly over the top and crazy because I am a crazy fangirl.

This band is composed of Adam Hann, Ross Macdonald, Matt Healy and George Daniel. They're from Manchester, England and has been together for 10 years. Their debut album, The 1975, has 39 tracks. Yes, 39 tracks and it shot up in the UK and US charts.

Here are my favorite songs from this band.

They're just girls, breaking hearts
Eyes bright, uptight, just girls
But she can't be what you need if she's 17
They're just girls
They're just girls

The City
If you wanna find love, then you know where the city is

Hey now, call it a split 'cause you know that you will
Oh, you bite your friends like chocolate
You say, we'll go where nobody knows, with guns hidden under our petticoats
No, we're never gonna quit
No, we're never gonna quit it.

You've seen so many faces that I've never seen before
I left an unrewarding message telling you to come on
Over dramatic, automatically assume I'll stay the same.

I'll give you one more time
We'll give you one more fight
Said no more line
Will I know you

Settle Down
And you're sure that I'd learn
I'm pushing through bodies
Avoiding me and walking 'round you
And you're cold and I burn
'Cause I stay another hour or two

Just listening to their songs gives you this very calming vibe. Some of the songs on their debut album are very electronic, and sometimes those kinds of songs can get very annoying. It's too auto tuned, but theirs isn't. It's perfect for road trips or for background music at like coffee shops and stuff. And their lyrics are very wonderful.

Check out their cover of Rather Be by Clean Bandit feat. Jess Glynne on BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge. This is, like, the coolest cover I've ever heard of.

If you're looking for the next band to cheer you up, or just looking for new music to listen, listen to The 1975. You will not regret it. I swear.

See you on the next episode/segment/whatever I'm supposed to call this lol!
