In an album filled with pop/rock experiments, "Somebody Else" is the one The 1975 NAILED. It's a breakup song for sure, but it's dramatized by only the lyrics. The vocals blend in with a pair of looping synths, one breathing, the other muted and lush. This allows the typically nasally voice of Healy to sound two things it isn't in any other 1975 song: comforting and emotional, as if this dull pain of an ex moving on with another lover can truly be resolved by venting alone.
