Download The 1975 A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships album zip
A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships makes good on the band’s promise. The first of two planned records in a six-month period, the album is a chaotic, scattered document of modern society that manages tremendous insight into a life lived online that sidesteps condescension or generalization. With ambition being an understatement, the band combines melodramatic power ballads, glitchy Auto-Tune, jazz crooners, and stadium-sized Britpop in a way that feels like a pointed response to the algorithmic flattening of modern pop. With a willingness to fail, and they occasionally do so throughout, the 1975 approach moments of profundity that are rare for a rock band in 2018.
‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’ certainly isn’t a dud. The quality of the singles themselves from ‘Give Yourself A Try’ and its banshee-esque instrumentation to the weird mixture of electronic and trop-pop influences that drive ‘TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME’, or the wholesome ‘Sincerity Is Scary’ through to the atmospheric euphoria of ‘Love It If We Made It’ or ‘It’s Not Living (If It’s Not With You)’ that there is more than enough here to satisfy fans and newcomers alike ahead of what will (hopefully) be a much more complete offering early next year with ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’.
But A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships is something else entirely: a meditation on how easy it is loses your sense of yourself in a world of ceaseless distractions and where our heightened, online identities increasingly bleed into our true selves.
975 and Healy, especially, are somewhat of an acquired taste and a whiff of indulgence characterises A Brief Inquiry’s occasionally lurches into jazz and funk. As for the assertion, already doing the rounds, that this is their OK Computer — well, anyone expecting a generation-defining masterpiece, is likely to be underwhelmed and possibly annoyed at the over-sell.
