Matty even took to Twitter to vent: "'LOOK OUT KIDZ THE GOVERNMENT ARE STEALING OUR THOUGHTS!!'"

Now some fans noticed the similarities straight away, with one saying: "wow EU Referendum maybe @ @the1975 next time you rip off their entire album campaign."

But others weren't convinced, with one Twitter user pointing out: "someone should probably let the lads from the 1975 know they didn't invent neon lights."
