The 1975’s Matt Healy talks with Kyle Meredith about Being Funny in a Foreign Language, Manchester quartet’s earnest new album.

The frontman discusses his knack for being self-aware in his lyrics, writing songs that don’t have choruses, and how they’ve avoided being bored of the process. Healy also tells us about the album’s closing track, “When We Are Together,” as well as the pitfalls of over-analyzing art and working with Samuel Bradley on their latest videos.

Elsewhere, he touches on the influence that Depeche Mode and Joy Division have had on the band, plus his plans to produce more projects for other artists.
