The 1975        

English Indie-Rock Band Known for "Chocolate" & "Somebody Else"

The 1975 are an English pop-rock band originally formed in 2002 in Wilmslow, Cheshire. Now based in Manchester, the band consists of lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Matthew Healy, lead guitarist Adam Hann, bassist Ross MacDonald, and drummer George Daniel.

The band's origins trace to their attendance at Wilmslow High School and playing together as teenagers. Gigs organized by a council worker led the band to formally sign with Dirty Hit and Polydor Records. The band opened for several major acts and released a series of extended plays (Facedown, Sex, Music for Cars, IV) throughout 2012 before releasing their self-titled debut album (2013), which included the popular singles "Sex," "Chocolate," and "Robbers" reaching #1 in the United Kingdom.

Their second album, I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It (2016), reached #1 in the US and UK. Following the touring cycle for the record, the band announced their third album under the working title of Music for Cars, before going on hiatus again throughout 2017.

Returning in 2018, the band announced that the album had evolved into their third campaign cycle, consisting of their third and fourth studio albums. The first, A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships (2018), was released to critical praise, and became their third #1 album in the UK.

Their song "Give Yourself A Try" was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Rock Song in the 2020 Grammys.
