The 1975 just released their second single UGH! from their sophomore LP I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it is, and it sounds like a Michael Jackson-Patrick Stump lovechild. Not only does frontman Matt Healy uphold the bands namesake with the songs bright synths, but with its cocaine-dipped lyrics as well. Healy sings of his addiction to the pricey habit;
I know your lungs need filling
Since your gums have lost their feeling
But don't say that you're giving it up again
"Do you have a card?
My irregular heart beat is starting to correct itself"
He craves a cigarette after he numbs his gums, and he already craves another fix when he asks for a card to make more lines with. Though his lyrics have dark, somber contexts, its shining with danceable beats and funky bass lines, and from the sound of it, Healy doesnt seem to be giving up his bad habit anytime soon.
