Back in 2013, The 1975 released the song "Girls
" about their sexual fascination with females. This ode to bromances is an antithesis to that track. Said Healy: "We're kind of like brothers. We've got a song called 'Girls,' and I wanted to just kind of write a song about kind of how much I loved my mates, and I wanted people to have a song that's like a love song for their mates."
