The majority of this article is written in third person narrative by the columnist, however there are pull quotes

and pull out quotes in this article in first person, these are mainly of Matt Healy the front man for the 1975. The graphology of this article is very interesting, as there are numerous images, to make it look more aesthetically pleasing, but the pull out quotes and little fact files on what each band member thinks of each other. The large image in the top left hand corner firstly attracts the readers’ attention as this is the first place they look, however the over lapping of the images on the bottom right hand side of the page, the last place the audience will look. This creates the impression that the content in between will be interesting, because the images portray this. The colour palette is very basic and sticks to black and red with the occasional grey, this is to give the article and more organised appearance which makes it easier for the audience to read/want to pick up and read. At times this article can be very colloquial, especially when the first person narrative gets involved, and example of this would be “he loves his drink”, a quotation taken from Adam Hann talking about his band mate Ross MacDonald. There is no really significant use of polysyllabic lexis, as this article is aimed at a wide range of academically statused public figures, therefore monosyllabic lexis is the more effective way of writing about a band in a magazine. The whole article is an anecdote, about being ‘on the road’ with the 1975, therefore there is no phatic communication, it is written as an article, chronologically, in order of their events, in a way acting like a section from a biography if they had one. There is a use of music/band jargon, such as ‘record label’, ‘front man’, drummer’ and ‘tour manager’. To specify why these are particularly attached to this topic is because they wouldn’t be used as words in sentences unless talking about music. There is no use of slang or taboo language within this article, as when interviewed, the band members sentences will have been tabbed with to ensure they sounded more formal, rather than jokey at times. This represents the power, the editor and magazine institutions have over celebrities and music artists, as they can twist what they say and make sure the world believes every word. Synthetic personalisation – a theory by Dyer in 1982 is also used in this article, to ensure that the reader connects with the article. By the simple use of quotations from the band members themselves, photos of the band, and discussion between the interviewer and the band indicates to the audiences that the information they are reading is specifically directed at them, the questions they may be wanting to ask, and an insight to what it would be like to be their ‘idols’.
