The 1975 is a four-member rock and pop band from the United Kingdom that got its start in 2002. They have gone through a variety of styles ranging from pop, alternative rock, indie rock and both new wave and post-punk revival.
They really started heating up in the US and worldwide after being included in the young adult megahit: "Love, Simon". The YA novel adaptation caused a lot of excitement when released, and predictably the soundtrack also hit top of the charts and boosted the careers of all the musicians included on it.
The 1975 performed 'Love, Me" on that soundtrack.
The band is made up of lead vocalist and rhythm guitaristMatthew "Matty" Healy, lead guitarist Adam Hann, bassist Ross MacDonald, and drummer George Daniel. The band's origins trace back to playing together as teenagers in 2002. Gigs organised by a council worker led the band to formally sign as the 1975. Their choice of name was inspired by a Jack Kerouac beat poetry book.
