The 1975 have performed a ‘YouTube Session’ version of People.
The video comes with its parent album Notes On A Conditional Form due on Friday – in our 8/10 review, Live4ever noted that frontman Matt Healy, ‘has learned to treat the group’s fans as a circle, providing an antidote to the condescension they often experience’:
“Giving solace on Don’t Worry, he then shreds his own curated persona during Nothing Revealed / Everything Denied, dropping the veil and confessing, ‘Life feels like a lie/I need something to be true’. It’s the duet with Phoebe Bridgers, Jesus Christ 2005 God Bless America, when sentiment twins most affectingly with the unspoken and buried on though, the words exploring modern sexuality and its constricting norms which both handle with a cherished humility.”
“Notes On A Conditional Form is a highly thought provoking, impactful record, not just because of the candour of its personality, or that it shows how one of the world’s biggest acts continue to pursue a unique take on the responsibilities of stardom. The truth is simple: on it you can hear The 1975 redefining what it is to be a rock band in the 21st century, going where they want, making their imperfections count. It would be a radical departure if the concept wasn’t already now theirs to own and explore as they see fit.”
