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.



In 2020 verschijnt het vierde studioalbum Notes On A Conditional Form. Van dat album is If You're Too Shy (Let Me Know) de eerste single.

Songtekst

I see her online
All the time
I'm trying not to stare down there
While she talks about her tough time

Girl of your dreams
You know what I mean
There's something 'bout her stare that makes you nervous
And you say things that you don't mean

Well, I found a hotel
I called up the twins
It's seven in the morning
So they won't let me in
I need to get back
I've gotta see the girl on the screen

Maybe I would like you better
If you took off your clothes
I'm not playing with you, baby
I think that you should give it a go (Yeah)
She said: maybe I would like you better
If you took off your clothes
I wanna see and stop thinking
If you're too shy, then let me
Too shy, then let me know

I've been
Wearing nothing every time I
Call you
And I'm starting to feel weird about it
Sometimes
It's better if you think about
This time
I think I'm gonna drink through it

And I see her online
I don't think that I should be calling
All the time
I just wanted a happy ending
And I pretend I don't care
About her stare
While she's giving me a tough time

Well, I found a motel
It looked like the pits
I think there'd been a murder
So we couldn't get in
I need to get back
I've gotta see the girl on the screen

Let's go

Maybe I would like you better
If you took off your clothes
I'm not playing with you, baby
I think that you should give it a go
She said: maybe I would like you better
If you took off your clothes
I wanna see and stop thinking
If you're too shy, then let me
Too shy, then let me know (Too shy, then let me)
If you're too shy, then let me know (Too shy, then let me)
If you're too shy, then let me know (Oh, yeah)

She's in my mind
All the time

She said: maybe I would like you better
If you took off your clothes (Oh)
I'm not playing with you, baby
I think that you should give it a go
She said: maybe I would like you better
If you took off your clothes
I wanna see and stop thinking
If you're too shy, then let me
Too shy, then let me know
