The 1975

Hailing from Manchester, U.K., the 1975 met at school in 2002, although lead singer and guitarist Matt Healy was born in London and drummer George Daniel was born across the North Sea in Brussels.

The rest of the lineup was comprised of Adam Hann on guitar and bassist Ross MacDonald.

Early incarnations of the band began by covering punk songs at gigs arranged for underage youths.

In 2012, they released their first EP, Facedown, on U.K. indie label Dirty Hit, and soon after supported Little Comets on their nationwide tour.

Toward the end of 2012 they released a second EP, entitled Sex.

The following year, a third EP appeared, titled Music for Cars, and gave us U.K. Top 20 single Chocolate.

Their self-titled debut — recorded with producer Mike Crossey (Arctic Monkeys, Foals) — was released in 2013.
