The 1975's Matt Healy on performing: 'It takes a lot for me to do this'

Singer Matt Healy, of The 1975, has revealed that he doesn't like to dwell on performances before he gets on stage and just prefers to turn up and get down to business straight away. 

Chatting to BBC's Newsbeat backstage at T in the Park recently, the 'Somebody Else' hitmaker admitted that playing live takes a lot out of him and it's stressful to think about it too much:

"I can't have too much build up. It takes a lot for me to do this (perform) and sometimes I need to take it easy. I like to rock up, do it, and not think about it too much."

As previously reported, Healy also spoke about the band's visuals and confessed that he is the creative brain behind their music videos: "I write all the videos and have mates who are brilliant directors. I write the storyline when I'm writing the song and how I see it in my head. It gives continuity."
