The popular english pop artist The 1975 has released a new cool song Tonight (I Wish I Was Your Boy). The song is from The 1975’s new album, ‘Notes Of A Conditional Form. Fans are really happy at the release of this song.
The song Tonight (I Wish I Was Your Boy) is Directed by Most Dismal Swamp, the UE development and filming is done by GVN908. In addition, the Character design (teddy) is by Hannah Rose Stewart also the 2D animations is by Tissue Hunter Editing and storyboards by Most Dismal Swamp VFX by Samuel Capps.
In a statement by The 1975 on youtube, “The 1975 and Ben Ditto have curated an online exhibition of 15 artists responding to tracks from NOACF. 01 Most Dismal Swamp responds to ‘Tonight (I Wish I Was Your Boy)’. In response to ‘Tonight (I Wish I Was Your Boy)’, Most Dismal Swamp (MDS) has worked with a group of artists to build a virtual environment and film a narrative within it.”
MDS began by “situating the voice in the song that seemed to be stuck in a moment, thinking of another time and even another timeline. The old and despondent teddy bear is the character I decided would inhabit this space—lost in reverie and nightmare, somewhere between nostalgia and anxiety.” So tonight lead singer Matty Healy becomes a bear; a bear in his little bedroom that sings of an unnamed pain; a bear that wishes he was your boy. MDS is a collective art project by Dane Sutherland, who describes it as a “mixed-reality biome”, amongst many other things: “ a multi-scalar mystic fiction … a curatorial MMORPG … a planetary weirding studio.”
He’s interested in world-building and likes to collaborate with other artists on composite mixed realities like this one. Inspired by the album’s exploration of technology, hope and anxiety, MDS decided to build a gamer’s bedroom with the GVN908 collective. In this bedroom lives a despondent, lovestruck teddy bear, modelled by Hannah Rose Stewart.
He has a view of the world outside, of an expansive meadow through a distorting baroque window, and also a view of the world inside, through his computer screen, on which an animation by Tissue Hunter and 3D model by Olia Svetlanova become bad thoughts that haunt him; cursed images that leak out into his room, and maybe also into yours. The film, MDS hopes, has the same dreamlike quality as the song it accompanies: “A bittersweet dream where you’d get lost, then have that feeling amplified by the shock of your actual reality when the dream ends.”
The 1975 also notified his Instagram and twitter fans about the release of his new song.

Below are some quotable lyrics
I tell you I can visualise it all
Too real it all seems
But once again, runnin’ away with me
Once again‚ runnin’ away with me
This couldn’t be a dream
Runnin’ away with me
Runnin’ away with me
And I stop myself for a minute
See if my heart’s still in it
Say a few things just to win it
Funny how it works out‚ innit?
