anonymous asked:

Where does "poetry is in the streets in full living color" come from?

its something the band references in the city, choclate and robbers videos and some other places, matty talked about it in an interview, he said “People are kicking off now because we just released the video for “Sex” and it’s in color. But this album was always going to be in color. It’s a colorful album. We have a quote about poetry in the street full of living color [“la poesie est dans la rue en couler pleine de vie”], and that was always alluding to the fact that we will one day break out into color.”

matty healy said he lived in a three-walled house and that meant that he always got recognised. i told him that he should just move, but he dragged me because apparently the retail price for houses without chunks missing is too much and means that the aesthetic is gone
