The 1975 - A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships download album
A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships is the third studio album by English indie rock band The 1975, released on 30 November 2018 by Dirty Hit and Polydor Records. It was produced by band members George Daniel and Matthew Healy, and is the band's first album not to be produced with regular collaborator Mike Crossey
And did they preface their new LP, A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships, with a 24-page manifesto that includes manic scribbles ( THIS IDEA HAS BEEN DONE BEFORE ), a picture of Healy petting a dog whilst on the toilet, and a technophobic survey of our contemporary clusterfuck of an existence that concludes: THE LEFT AND RIGHT GROW MORE APART BUT YOU CAN JUST.
Still good but i prefer more "single" style songs. Ten minutes later, I came back to it and decided to actually listen to the songs and listen with a different mindset to try and understand the concept of the album and man, that did the trick.
The album got leaked four days before the official release. The band originally planned to release an EP titled What a Shame which was called off, as the project had become something bigger according to the band’s manager Jamie Oborne. Matty Healy thought that the third album should be the last one for the band but then he changed his mind and decided to make two records and release them in a six months time: For a while, I’d been thinking that this would be our last album. The reason I did that is that when you’re a writer, you want a good ending. The Context Of The Digital: A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships’ is the title of Gene McHugh’s essay. Talking about the inspiration behind the record’s title, Matty says: Not necessarily by the essay itself, but by the title – it was curated into a book called ‘You Are Here: Art After The Internet’.
The 1975's third studio album ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’ is a game-changing moment. Clever and profound, funny and light, serious and heartbreaking, painfully modern and classic-sounding all at the same time, ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’ is a game-changing album, one that challenges The 1975’s peers – if, indeed, there are any – to raise their game. So Healy had set out to describe his own experience, but in doing so has produced an artefact that sums up millennial life, a magpie pop masterpiece that could only be made right now and right here.
I’m making pop records, The 1975 frontman Matty Healy told Beats 1 host Matt Wilkinson. When I say we’re a pop band, what I’m really saying is we’re not a rock band. Please stop calling us a rock band-’cause I think that’s the only music we don’t make. On the neo-jazz of Sincerity Is Scary, he rails against a modern aversion to emotional expression. Broadly an album about love in the digital age, A Brief Inquir. ffers compelling insights into Healy’s own life.
Album: A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships.
The fact that ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’ never once takes the easy way out is exactly why The 1975 are a band impossible to ape. The first of two records under the ‘Music For Cars’ umbrella, it isn’t just a great album - it’s a generation-defining masterpiece. Refusing to succumb to expectations, it’d be obvious to label it part poptimist contender to Radiohead’s ‘Kid A’, part millennial ‘OK Computer’. In truth, though, it’s both, and yet so much more.
