Last night, I was lucky enough to be able to have watched The 1975 perform live. Words could never describe how absolutely amazing the entire experience was. When Matty, Adam, George, and Ross came out on stage and immediately started off with The City, I couldn’t believe they were real. There they were, standing on stage, performing some of the best songs our generation has heard, while I stood there, screaming and singing along, still not being able to grasp the fact that these people were real. They were right there in front of me, their songs blasting into my ears and it all felt so unreal. I don’t think I was even happy then. It was something totally different. I felt like crying and smiling and I wanted the moment to last forever. You know how you feel (all jumpy and as if your stomach suddenly turned into a turbo washing machine you couldn’t control) when you first hear a certain song and right from the first beat, you just know that it’ll be one of ‘those’ songs? Those songs that make your head spin and make you feel unstoppable. Those ‘headlights and streetlights passing by so fast because i’m in a car that they’re all a blur and it’s 10 pm and the sky is pitch black and I can feel the wind on my back’ songs that manage to give you goosebumps every time? That’s how it felt like, being there and listening to Matty Healy’s voice while George is banging away on his drums, and Ross and Adam are playing the hell out of their guitars. I felt like I did when I first heard one of my personal favorite’s of their’s, which was ‘Fallingforyou’. I cried the first time I heard that song. That was the first time I seriously started listening to The 1975 and that giant wave of emotion just pulled me under into the fandom. I was in love — and I’m not a person who actually believes in love but right then and there, I did. At their concert last night, that’s how it felt like. Last night, I fell in love all over again.
