The 1975 is a British band, that performs music with a 70's/80's vibe to it. The lyrics usually consist of sexuality, politics or life as a young adult in the modern culture.
This year, The 1975 has released now 3 very different feeling songs. "Give Yourself A Try" was a harsher song with heavy guitar, all about getting older and trying new things. Where "Love It If We Made It" was a much more thought-provoking song, a more serious piece of music, with more of a social and political theme.
"TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME" is a flow-y electronic-pop song with smooth lyrics. The song is about fidelity, where Matty is singing about calling another girl while in a relationship.
The introduction is 30 seconds long, a bit longer than most songs currently being put out. But around half way through said introduction, the tempo picks up and gives the listeners a taste of what the songs beat is, with the melody being a smooth transition between the white noise that starts the song, something The 1975 puts in a lot of their music.
Matty's vocals are a bit electronic sounding for my taste, I would much rather have raw vocals than something that sounds overly auto-tuned.
Overall, the song is clever, catchy, and makes you think about how cheating can change the dynamics of a relationship, and what constitutes cheating in the eyes of each individual person. The chorus of the song is amusing and right on beat where it shows the meaning of the song on its arms.
I swear that I only called her one time
Maybe it was two times?
I don't think it was three times
It can't be more than four times
I think we need to rewind
You text that boy sometimes!
Must be more than three times!
I didn't mean to too time, too time you
