how are you doing? i'm feeling amazing (that's weird haha)

today is friday and the 1975 is back, world! my fucking favorite band is B A C K!

and since I've never, NEVER wrote an article about them (i only quoted the band in some articles) i decided to do a review of their new album aka the modern artwork that it was released today.

so welcome to my review of a brief inquiry into online relationships!!!!

i hope you enjoy it as much as I'm enjoying writing this article for you

ps. if I had heard the song before because it was a single, I'll tell you :)

let's go!

A BRIEF INQUIRY INTO ONLINE RELATIONSHIPS

1. The 1975
Every version of this song on each of the three albums is incredible, but this is certainly my favorite. I cried the whole song, it was five in the morning, and I was just crying my heart out!

2. Give Yourself a Try - SINGLE
Every time I hear this song I get completely dancing. The strident guitar, the loud sounds, the musical confusion and all this extremely complex sound make me even more excited. The lyrics are Matty's life story and it scares me to think that even far from him, I know a little about his life and what he's been through.

3. TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME - SINGLE
The pop song. I love pop and Matty loves pop as well, but it's still strange to think that the band that used to be alternative rock today plays pop. But I find it liberating and beautiful this continuity and mutability of the band. And the music video is simply B E A U T I F U L

4. How to Draw / Petrichor
It seemed like i was listening to poetry. i felt like i was flying and then it was like i went into a night club and i was dancing with matty. You'll understand me when you hear it.

5. Love it If We Made it - SINGLE
I love this song. It's certainly one of my favorites on the album. It is political, has a "loving someone" vibe, has epic and unbelievable passages, and sounds industrial and technological, but almost as a manifesto. How do you not like a song that has the phrase: "Poison me, daddy" and talks kind of badly about Donald Trump?

6. Be My Mistake
MY FAVORITE SONG! THE GUITAR! THE FUCKING GUITAR! I pictured myself in the living room of matty's house and he playing guitar and singing it. So simple, but has an indescribable perfection.

7. Sincerity is Scary- SINGLE
I think it was the song that showed the transcendence of the change in the band. It's a beautiful song, with an incredible arrangement. The visual of the music video is spectacular and completely different from anything The 1975 had ever created. I particularly fell in love with this song the first time I heard it. <3

8. I Like America & America Likes Me
The beat is so different and the lyrics are so true and honest, almost like a scream that was stuck inside of him. The 1975 only rocks every single time, I cannot complain about anything, just that I didn't want the songs to end.

9. The Man Who Married A Robot / Love Theme
This song for me was the most audacious of the whole album. First, it's not a song, it's a monologue, a monologue narrated by Siri. I just wish you had seen my face when I first heard it. It was sad, bold and scary, I was in shock when it was over. And the reason for all this emotional confusion is that I know we are close to or even living in the narrated reality.

10. Inside Your Mind
Inside your mind is raw, organic and sincere. I loved it. It has an extremely magnificent instrumental part and shows a reality almost abusive, but that doesn't get to the point. It just tells the desire of someone who wanted to know everything his lover thought. It's beautiful in some way.

11. It's Not Living (If It's Not With You) - SINGLE
Matty's heroin addiction was being the theme of a song still makes me shiver. The courage he took when he wrote each verse of the song is insane. It has a happy rhythm in a way, but the lyrics, when you understand the real meaning, gets more and more intense and deep each time you listen it.

12. Surrounded By Heads And Bodies
It was the song inspired by a book and by the time Matty was in rehab surrounded only by nurses and Angela, a woman who was also in rehab. I think I still don't understand the song completely. I haven't yet done the complete digestion of each slice. It is an intensity and honesty too great to be understood quickly, you have to devour piece by piece slowly.

13. Mine
We have flute. We have piano. We have jazz vibes. We have saxophone again. We have the whole package for a song to become a hit. I'm just saying one thing, The 1975 is making history.

14. I Couldn't Be More In Love
Do you know those sad pop ballads of the 90's? or those songs that play in the 90's movies at the time of the slow dance of the prom? So that's how this song sounds to me. Many incredible vocals and the hoarse voice in some parts is very sexy.

15. I Always Wanna Die (Sometimes)
It was like the end of a good movie or when you read the last page of your new favorite book. FUCK, I LOVE THIS BAND. And the violins in the end? WHAT?! CAN SOMEONE EVEN HATE THE 1975?! I'm grateful world!

END
