Published Sep 13, 2018After detailing their forthcoming A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships LP earlier this week, the 1975 have shared another new track from the effort.
Titled "Sincerity is Scary," the song follows the release of "Give Yourself A Try," "Love It If We Made It," and "TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME."
The band's Matt Healy discussed the song's genesis with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Radio today, as follows:
"Sincerity Is Scary" is about me trying to denounce all of that postmodern fear of like being real, you know? Like irony first, irony first. Make sure you're ironic because then you can't be judged on being a person. And I've become so aware of the shtick that exists within my kind of lyrical narrative as well, because obviously I love everything that I've done previously but now as I got older I see these kind of defense mechanisms whether they be jokes or being slightly sardonic or like he is the big emotional bit of the song but I'm not going to be really emotional. All those kind of things. I think on this record it's slightly more, it's just a bit more open and a bit easier, and genuinely sincere.
A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships arrives November 30 through Polydor.
