* LyricalDissonance: They are ''very'' fond of this trope. "M.O.N.E.Y.", for example, is an upbeat funk song about a boy who wastes his money on cocaine to be cool, but eventually gets hurt badly by it ("Tabs with unlimited 0's / New clothes, bloody nose / Powders and walking back home / Has he got enough weed? No / Broken phone, retching on the floor alone..."), is even [[NoFourthWall called out by the narrator]] ("I can't believe that we're talking about him!") and eventually gets arrested ("I'm searching you, mate, your jaw's all over the place... / Look, the dog won't bark if you don't lark about...").
** "UGH!" counts, too. It's a very catchy, upbeat song about a cocaine relapse. The video, which consists of bright lights and [[DancingWithMyself Matty's dancing,]] doesn't hurt, either.

Most recently, the band played at Coachella 2014 and in the Royal Albert Hall. Their second album was released in 2016, and is titled ''I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It''. The song 'Medicine' was intended to be the first single from the album, but was later revealed to be just a part of the 2014 rescore for ''Film/{{Drive}}''. In mid-2015, the band released the album's first true single, 'Love Me'. On Twitter, Matty revealed that the next album will be titled ''Music For Cars'' as a ShoutOut to the EP, and will be released in 2018.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Although ''The 1975'' has its darker moments, it mostly sticks to the themes of romance and heartbreak, whereas ''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.

** "The Sound," one of the band's biggest singalongs and a standout single, is also about seeing someone else's true self after the relationship has crumbled, but bonus points for the pre-chorus line of, "You're so conceited, I / said that I love you / What does it matter if I lie to you?"

* BlackComedy: As a lyricist, Matty has the tendency to write about serious topics in flippant, sometimes sarcastic ways.

All of this is PlayedForLaughs.
