- Read more: The 1975’s new album ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’: Release date, tour dates and everything we know so far
Talking to Alyssa Rose of US radio station ALT 949, The 1975 frontman was asked a question many on social media have mocked, labelling it as non-credible journalism, and even going as far as lump it in as part of “influencer culture.
Rose asked: “What’s your favourite essential oil?” To which Healy first replied: “I don’t know what that it.” He then asked: “Oils that you need?” after which he admitted to Rose that “petrol would be my essential oil.”
At that point the interviewer appeared to get lost in translation as she didn’t know what petrol was. “Gas. Gasoline,” Healy said, having to explain.

Them: What’s your essential oil?
This is “journalism” at Coachella for pivoted-to-video, brand-sponsored, influencer culture.

Healy also discussed The 1975’s upcoming new album, ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’, during the interview.
“I’m an active emo man, I suppose I’d call myself,” he explained, noting that the band are aiming for a more humble approach to their music.
“I think that bands when they get to a stage that maybe we’re in they wanna kind of graduate into being like a massive rock band, whereas we wanna graduate into like being a small emo band, if you know what I mean.
“It’s not like where emo ended up sounding record, like My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy sounding record. There’s definite references to Joan Of Arc and Braid and Mineral. You hear a lot of that on No Rome’s new EP, it’s kind of like an emo record and I play drums on that and we were making that the same time we started ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’, so it does have this kind of like, Midwest kind of sound to it.”

Meanwhile, in another Coachella interview, Healy revealed the song that he thinks perfectly sums up The 1975.
The Streets frontman shared a picture of Healy alongside various pieces of equipment with the caption: “Best studio in a hotel room ever”, while the 1975 man posted a photo the pair together with the caption: “tunes heavy”.
