The new album by The 1975, A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships, offers a rebellious attitude towards society’s obsession with technology, love and self awareness. The album addresses many controversial subjects such as politics, the future of this generation and recent tragedies that have hit many countries .

A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships has a strong candid and direct tone with their lyrics that show the professional and personal growth of the band.

Many of the songs in the album connect to the same idea with a different tune. The 1975 focuses on the importance of mental health to millennials with hits like “Give Yourself A Try” which has an exciting and hyped up chorus with a stand-out guitar. “ I Always Wanna Die (Sometimes)” communicates the same message but with a more soft and isolated sound with  the voice of lead singer, Matthew Healy, standing out.

Each song shows the vulnerability of the band and allows their fans to understand their struggles and the mistakes they’ve made in their life such as the ballad, “Be My Mistake.” The tune encompasses soft jazz and piano melodies to emphasize the heartbreaking lyrics.

The album reflects what’s going on in the world and how difficult circumstances can be. Previous albums from the band show common themes of rebellion. The first album has a black and white theme that highlights a toxic love romance that is mentioned throughout the songs. The second album has a light pink theme to emphasize a more pop approach of love and celebrities. The most recent album stands out with its more white, minimalistic theme to have fans assume their own idea from the songs on the album.
