I wonder if those were actual comments made about them on the FaceTubes, and such.

Hmm, not sure about it. I kinda dig it, but definitely not completely sold. Love the album title, though.

They should have just gone with 1975. "The" kills the flow of their name. To each his own, but this song does nothing for me. Can't see the OMD (who I dig) influence. I think The Goodnight blow these guys outta the water. Thanks for sharing though.

The "The" is intentional, and the whole reason they named themselves that.

I get that "the" is part of their name. My question is why? The 1975 sounds so clunky.

I agree that it does sound weird, but, like I said, that's why they named themselves that. It comes from a poetry book Matthew Healy read, with the date written as "1 June, The 1975" in the back.

My better-half's youngest daughter likes this lot ... they do nothing for me, I'm afraid ...

It's reminding me of OMD, who have 1 good song and the rest are awful.

 

1? Seriously? They were never a huge favourite of mine, but I can think of a handful of great songs by them - Enola Gay, Souvenir, Joan Of Arc, Maid Of Orleans, If You Leave ... perhaps you needed to have grown up in the UK in the 80s to appreciate them ;)

Thanks Funk. Knowing the history behind it, now I think the name is kinda cool.

It's OK. I still agree it's awkward to say.
