Back in 2002, most of the world was listening to a heady mixture of Eminem, Linkin Park, Oasis and the kind of Pop music that never seems to go away (we're looking at you Las Ketchup) and one collective formed ignoring pretty much all of it - The 1975.
Not that the group immediately became 'The 1975' as there were several name changes before frontman Matty Healy picked up a copy of 'On the Road' by Jack Kerouac but messr's Matty, Ross, Adam and George were destined for stardom from the very beginning.
Fast-forward to 2020 and the band are on the cusp of releasing their massively anticipated fourth studio album: Notes on a Conditional Form after nearly two decades of grinding their way to the top.
Of course, with every grind comes some anthemic ups such as the band's most commercially successful hits: The Sound, Chocolate, Give Yourself a Try and other massive tracks but there's also a lot of quieter, downplayed songs that only the most hardcore of fans keep on their repeat playlists.
Ladies and Gentlemen, The 1975... you've been sleeping on.
