Following the release of their latest album A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships, British icons The 1975 have been riding a wave of popularity with performances at Coachella and two sold out shows at the Roxy in Los Angeles. The group has been praised as one of the best and most innovative bands of our generation, led by creative genius Matty Healy.
From the success of their debut radio single “Chocolate” to their ever growing popularity three albums later, it is clear that The 1975 is destined to become one of the most well known bands of today.
