“I depend on my friends to stay clean, as sad as it seems“
A little bit of happy/sad feels from The 1975’s latest The Birthday Party. Lyrically dense its soft and calming soundscape is meditative as Matty reflects on his current state of mind and his thoughts around parties and how internet culture can affect your daily life.
Musically the song flows slowly and doesn’t change up the pace at any point. It’s relaxing and reflective and best enjoyed with full attention.
The video follows a CGI generated band joining MindShower, a digital detox retreat as they encounter various meme culture characters.
