The 1975 Performs “Sincerity Is Scary” and “TooTimeTooTimeTooTime” on BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge
- British rock band The 1975 appeared on the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge, where the band performed “Sincerity Is Scary” and “TooTimeTooTimeTooTime”.
Both of the songs are included on their latest album "A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships" the release on November 30th.
The album reached No. 1 on the UK Album Chart. The album is the part one of the campaign for "Music for Cars" which contains of two albums. The band will release the fourth album "Notes on a Conditional Form" in May 2019 as the part two.
The band frontman Matty Healy said of “Sincerity Is Scary” on Apple Beats 1, "‘Sincerity Is Scary’ is about me trying to denounce all of that postmodern fear of like being real, you know? Like irony first, irony first. Make sure you’re ironic because then you can’t be judged on being a person. And I’ve become so aware of the shtick that exists within my kind of lyrical narrative as well, because obviously I love everything that I’ve done previously but now as I got older I see these kind of defense mechanisms whether they be jokes or being slightly sardonic or like he is the big emotional bit of the song but I’m not going to be really emotional. All those kind of things. I think on this record it’s slightly more, it’s just a bit more open and a bit easier, and genuinely sincere."
He worked with co-producer No Rome on “TooTimeTooTimeTooTime”. He told BBC Radio 1, "The clap comes from a kind of reggae-ton place, but I suppose it’s […] No Rome, who’s my best mate, who lives with me now and I was working on one of his beats. We’d done a song together called “Narcissist” and we were going to put that out like next month or something and we were working on it and something went wrong. It just started looping too fast and the beat in 2 time just kind of appeared. And then we just made that."
The 1975 will embark on a North American Tour between March and June 2019. Learn more about tour dates, click here.
