Who doesn't know One Direction? I bet hearing this instantly makes you think of one band member, right? What about 5 Seconds of Summer or The Vamps? But let me give credits to this one band called, "The 1975". It is an indie rock band from Manchester with four band members: Matty Healy, Ross MacDonald, Adam Hann and George Daniel. Although they are already acknowledged as an alternative rock group, they are influenced with diverse genres such as electro-pop, electronic music, guitar pop, R&B, etc. It made me wondered why this band is called "The 1975". When I first heard it, I thought it was ridiculous like a joke that wasn't sold. But here is the reason why this band is called the The 1975: Healy recounts that the name was inspired by the scribblings found at the back of an old Beat poetry book dated, "1 June, The 1975".
