The 1975 are an English pop rock band formed in 2002 in Wilmslow, Cheshire. Now based in Manchester, the band consists of lead vocalist, producer, lyricist and rhythm guitarist Matty Healy, lead guitarist Adam Hann, bassist Ross MacDonald, and drummer/producer George Daniel. The band's origins trace to their attendance at secondary school and playing together as teenagers. Gigs, organised by a council worker, led the band to sign with Dirty Hit and Polydor Records. The band opened for several major acts and released a series of extended plays throughout 2012 before releasing their self-titled debut album, which included the popular singles "Sex", "Chocolate", and "Robbers" and reached number one in the United Kingdom. Their second album, I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware of It, reached No. 1 in the US, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Following the touring cycle for the record, the band announced their third album under the working title of Music for Cars, before going on hiatus again throughout 2017.
