* AlcoholicParent: 'She Lays Down' is about Matty's mother--who had issues with alcoholism and drug addiction when he was growing up.
* ArcWords: 'Soft sound' in their debut, and 'lost my head' in 'I Like It When You Sleep'.
* BigBrotherInstinct: 'Is There Someone Who Can Watch You?' is about how the protagonist feels responsible for his little brother following their parents divorce.
* BlackComedy: For songs about drug addiction, heartbreak and mental illness, a lot of their songs are pretty droll. 'Paris', 'Change of Heart', 'M.O.N.E.Y.', 'Menswear', 'She's American' and 'Ugh!' particularly come to mind.

* CarefulWithThatAxe: Matt's a tenor, so this is expected naturally. That being said, their first album's most chilling (and [[TearJerker saddening]]) moment comes from his epic scream on 'Robbers':--> ''Now everybody's '''''DEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAD!!'''''''

* DarkerAndEdgier: Although ''The 1975'' has its darker moments, it mostly sticks to the themes of romance and heartbreak, wheras ''I Like It When You Sleep'' primarily deals with the themes of mental illness, drug addiction and death. It's somewhat ironic, considering the aesthetic for the second album is much brighter and more colourful, and the first album's aesthetic was monochrome and moody.

* {{Irony}}: The main hook of the song 'Talk!', which is basically shouted:



** {{Book End|s}}ed with 'Sex', which opens ''and'' closes with an ear-shattering...'''moan''' of some sort. At the very end of the song, however, after the moan ends, it closes with a nice guitar chord.

* NoAccountingForTaste: 'Paris' centres around a couple who's relationship hinges on their shared drug use, even though the narrator doesn't really seem to like his girlfriend at all.

** Also when the band played a gig at Glastonbury in 2014. When 'Robbers' played, a high-squeaky voice could be heard behind Healy's. It is assumed it is George Daniel's despite George having a very, very deep speaking voice in real life.
