The 1975's Matt Healy says performing live is 'deeply humbling'

The 1975's Matt Healy has opened up on the feeling he gets when performing in front of crowds.

The British group are a big draw on the live scene and their audiences have progressively been getting larger.

Speaking to Digital Spy, frontman Healy said that he is humbled by the fact that songs he wrote at home are being shared with thousands.

He said that performing live "plays with your ego", adding:

"I'm not talking about arrogance, I'm talking about your knowledge and your self-awareness. Your sense of self. It makes you realise that you're touching a lot of people, you really are.

"It's a really deeply humbling feeling because it's quite transcendent and it feels slightly surreal. I don't feel any different, all those songs were written in my bedroom in my head, and now they're just out there being part of other people's lives."

The 1975 meanwhile are due to embark on a UK tour in September and October.
