Matty has stated that they are working on their second studio album, slated for a 2015 release before being pushed back to 2016. It is currently titled ''I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It''.

* BlackComedy: As a lyricist, Matty has the tendency to write about serious topics in flippant, sometimes sarcastic ways. Take 'Menswear', which is about a wedding going rapidly downhill, and includes the protagonist snorting cocaine in the bathroom and telling the bride he never really liked her. All of this is PlayedForLaughs.

* BlackComedy: For songs about drug addiction, heartbreak and mental illness, a lot of their songs are pretty droll. "Paris", "A Change of Heart", "M.O.N.E.Y.", "Menswear", "She's American" and "UGH!" particularly come to mind.

* LastNoteNightmare: "The 1975" on ''Tje 1975'' ends with a loud clang, detracting away from the song's ethereal feel. It's also heard briefly at the beginning of the song, and also twice in "Anobrain".
