In 2002 in Wilmslow vormen klasgenoten Matthew Healy, Ross MacDonald, Adam Hann en George Daniel een band. Ze speelden onder verschillende namen (waaronder Talkhouse, the Slowdown en Drive Like You Do voordat ze de naam van The 1975 aannemen. Die naam werd gevonden achterop een bundel van Jack Kerouac waarop de tekst ‘1 June, The 1975’ stond.



In augustus van 2012 verschijnt hun eerste ep, Facedown waarvan The City al airplay op de Britse radio wist te realiseren. De titeltrack van hun tweede ep, Sex, bereikt de Britse Top 40. In 2013 speelt The 1975 in het voorprogramma van Muse voordat in september hun titelloze debuutalbum verschijnt. Het tweede album, I Like It When You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It, verschijnt in februari van 2016. Dat krijgt in 2018 een vervolg met het album A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships waarvan aan het einde van het jaar It’s Not Living (If It’s Not With You) ook in ons land aan populariteit wint.

Songtekst

Danny ran into some complications
He falls asleep during conversations
He's gotta search the street when he's on vacation
The worst thing is that I'm in the same situation

And all I do
Is sit and think about you
If I knew what you'd do
Collapse my veins
Wearing beautiful shoes
It's not living if it's not with you

And Danny says we're living in a simulation
But he works in a petrol station (Selling petrol)
He says it all began with his operation
And I know you think you're sly, but you need some imagination

And all I do
Is sit and think about you
If I knew what you'd do
Collapse my veins
Wearing beautiful shoes
It's not living if it's not with you

All I do
Is sit and drink without you
If I choose then I lose
Distract my brain
From the terrible news
It's not living if it's not with you

I can't stop sweating or control my feet
Got a twenty stone monkey that I just can't beat
I can stage a situation, but I just can't eat
And there's a feeling you're replacing embrace

It's true that all I do
Is sit and think about you
If I knew what you'd do
Collapse my veins
Wearing beautiful shoes
It's not living if it's not with you

All I do
Is sit and drink without you
If I choose then I lose
Distract my brain
From the terrible news
It's not living if it's not with you

Oh, I'll try to get a job in a bank, I think
Danny spent the time trying to pack in the drinks for me
I feel sick and I know I that I'll lose, but
It's not living if it's not with you

It's not living if it's not with you (It's not, it's not)
It's not, it's not
It's not living if it's not with you (It's not, it's not)
It's not living if it's not with you (It's not)

It's not living if it's not with you (It's not, it's not)
It's not, it's not
It's not living if it's not with you (It's not, it's not)
It's not living if it's not with you (It's not)
