8 Reasons To Love The 1975

You've probably heard their famous song "Chocolate," but they are so much more than that.

8 Reasons To Love The 1975

You probably know them from the song “Chocolate” that became popular a couple years ago, however the 1975 is so much more than just that one particular song. They’re extremely innovative and creative producers, songwriters and musicians and have just released their tour dates for North America which kicks off in October. See you November 25, The 1975.

1. They cross all genres.

From songs like “Girls” and “The Sound” that are uber-pop to soft, melodic ballads like “Falling For You” and “Nana” to R&B influences in “If I Believe You," their music crosses all genres and they say they love that. They like to experiment with different sounds and don’t like to categorize themselves. Pop, alternative, electronic, rock - it doesn’t matter. All that matters is the incredible music.

2. They are original and innovative.

They have been together since when they were all in high school and their manager specifically set up a record label just for them because no one would sign them. Because of this, they make the type of music they want to and aren't tied down by anyone else's vision for them.

3. They are from the U.K.

Who doesn't love a great British boy band?

4. "Somebody Else" music video.

Just released a couple weeks ago, it already has over five million views and I think I may have contributed to about half of those. All I can say is just watch it.

5. The song “Robbers.”

This song in and of itself gives me the feels every time I listen to it. This is the one song I would have someone listen to if they have never heard the 1975 before.

6. Their live production/set.

For reference, “UGH!” music video.

7. How beautiful they are.

Aside from exuding talent musically, their looks definitely don’t hurt either. Pictured above from the GQ "Some of the most stylish men in existence" feature.

8. Matty Healy himself.

Watch any interview of frontman Matty Healy and he is absolutely mesmerizing. He is so intelligent, yet humble and incredibly well-spoken. He speaks from the heart and is so candidly honest and fervent about what he does. And he’s good to look at as well.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
