In the new issue of Q, we go in deep with The 1975. Sylvia Patterson spends time with the quartet in England and Los Angeles to hear the story of how they became one of the world’s biggest bands by stealth and finds out how frontman Matty Healy pulled back from the abyss so as to push his group into a new galaxy. “The 1975 are incredibly representative of the millennial generation. And what is the millennial generation? It’s musically all over the place and it’s particularly mentally unwell,” Healy tells her.
Also in the new issue, Eve Barlow heads to Dave Grohl’s festival in California and gets the lowdown from the singer and drummer on the Nirvana reunion that took place at the end of Foo Fighters’ set. Niall Doherty meets US singer-songwriter John Grant to learn how navigating his way through depression, drugs and death has shaped his excellent new album and Sylvia Patterson pops round to Neneh Cherry’s West London house for tea and meditation.
