"1975: Their ""mellow"", stripped down style was praised of ""attention-grabbing production theatrics"". Though generally acknowledged as an alternative rock group, they have been influenced by diverse genres including electro-pop, electronic music, guitar pop, and R&B. Their ""melancholic"" black and white visual aesthetic is juxtaposed with major keys and what the band calls ""classic pop sensibilities"". Lyrically, The 1975 explore themes of discovery and novelty in the more specific context of sex, love, drugs, hope, death, and fear, thus the basis of rock music.
Self-titled album: In a 2012 interview with Elliot Mitchell of When the Gramophone Rings, The 1975 frontman Matt Healy said the band had a different approach to recording the album than to the EPs: ""I think the best albums are ones where every track could be a potential single. Both our EP’s center around a lead track whilst showcasing a wider body of work, whereas we feel the album is lead track after lead track, with all the alternative moments captured in an accessible way."" He also said that the album had been ""five years in the making, formed through the many different incarnations of the band,"" and added that it is ""drenched in our identity and it’s everything that we are. It does span a lot of genres and depth, but it’s still a coherent piece of work and everything that makes our band our band, personally I would say it’s an ambitious debut record.""
On the album content, Healy said: ""This recording process has been really fun, as we’ve had a lot of these songs for a while, and to record them in a completely different mindset with a completely different outlook has been really interesting. (...) There album isn’t a haberdashery of past singles and old stuff, it has been focused down into a collective piece of work. There’s tracks on there that people would have heard live, and older tracks that we’ve reworked. This album is a soundtrack to our formative years, so it would be dishonest to not put songs on there that we wrote when we were 21, as we want people to connect to it in the same way that we do."" He described the musical style as ""pretty experimental, and goes from glitchy R&B to big 80’s powerpop to mid 90’s soul, but it’s done in our way obviously."""
