‘I Think There’s Something You Should Know’ from The 1975’s new album, ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’. Out now - https://ift.tt/2JD7bvq

The 1975 and Ben Ditto have curated an online exhibition of 15 artists responding to tracks from ‘NOACF’.
08 Alice Bucknell responds to ‘I Think There’s Something You Should Know’

“I wanted to play around with this idea of the secret, as referenced by the title, and the feeling of suspense that the track produces, scaling both up to a world-making capacity,” explains artist and writer Alice Bucknell. “Some of the album’s themes include technology, anxiety and ecological destruction, and I was thinking about these within the framework of an architectural utopia. The overarching idea, or set of ideas really, framing this project was an interest in technological utopias and the inevitable failure of these ambitions.”


Her film flies us to a ringed planet on which she’s constructed 3D models of three sci-fi cities, one for each of the song’s different sections: the first is a postmodern seastead that brings to mind the Las Vegas Strip. The second, and most contemporary, is a high-tech wellness metropolis which mixes Tokyo signage, SoulCycle classes and tropical foliage; “Decked out in neon lights and synthetic palm trees,” says Bucknell, “it’s the unfortunate byproduct of some Instagram algorithm, like Blade Runner meets Miami Beach.” The third, in which ‘I Think There’s Something You Should Know’ reaches its euphoric climax, is a glowing pioneer town out in the desert. All are rendered in a neon club aesthetic that matches the track’s up-tempo house feel and crisp, spacious production.

“What drew me to this track in particular,” says Bucknell, “is the loosening of what’s perceived as truth, or reality, through the forces of fantasy and desire. That’s what led me to thinking about this planet as a sort of glitch or technological error that ultimately deletes itself at the end of the video.” 

In the last few frames the planet glitches then disappears. It leaves us wondering: Were these cities just mirages? Are utopias even possible, in the real or virtual worlds, or will they always conceal a hidden darkness?

Notes on a Conditional Form is the fourth studio album by English band the 1975, released on 22 May 2020 through Dirty Hit and Polydor Records. It was recorded from August 2018 to February 2020 and produced by band members George Daniel and Matthew Healy, with some tracks also co-produced by Jonathan Gilmore.

The album is the second and final part of the two albums from their third release cycle, "Music for Cars", following A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships (2018). The album has been described as genre-hopping, mainly focusing on pop, rock, electronic, and dance music subgenres. Songs on the album have been described by writers as pop rock, folk music, industrial rock, and UK garage, among others. Additional vocalists featured on the album include FKA Twigs, Phoebe Bridgers, and Greta Thunberg, the latter of whom provided a spoken word piece on the album's intro track.

The 22-track album was preceded by the seven singles "People", "Frail State of Mind", "Me & You Together Song", "The Birthday Party", "Jesus Christ 2005 God Bless America", "If You're Too Shy (Let Me Know)", and "Guys" over a nine-month period; the intro track "The 1975" was additionally released prior to the album's release. The album topped the UK charts within its first week of release, becoming the band's fourth consecutive no.1 album. Despite this, the album divided critics: many praised the album's ambition as well as its genre exploration, while others criticized the album as overly bloated and incoherent.
