It’s definitely a step in a different direction for the band as frontman Matty Healy stated in an interview with ALT 94.9 around Coachella.
“It’s not like a where emo ended up sounding record like My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy sounding record. There’s definite references to Joan Of Arc and Braid and Mineral… you hear a lot of that on No Rome’s new EP, it’s kind of like an emo record and I played drums on that and we were making that the same time we started Notes On A Conditional Form, so it does have this kind of like, Midwest kind of sound to it.”
