While we’re still no closer to having an official release date for their upcoming album A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships, The 1975 are continuing to share new music, adding to their earlier singles with last week’s “TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME.”
The new track sees the band dipping their feet into the warm and trendy waters of the Tropical House sound, while 1975 frontman Matty Healy waxes about millenial relationship anxiety in a singsong pattern that’s unmistakably inspired by Drake.
Healy himself actually acknowledged the song’s Aubrey-esque qualities in a previous interview with The Guardian, back before we knew what “TOOTIME” would actually sound like, and guessed that it might be his band’s biggest hit on A Brief Inquiry. Based on what we’ve heard, he’s got a great chance of being correct!
