London: Matt Healy, lead singer and guitarist of rock band The 1975, is reportedly upset with One Direction over the sound of their new record.

According to a source, Healy is unhappy that One Direction have moved towards a more rocky style on their new record, which he feels mimics The 1975, reports

"Matty has had a right old rant about 1D sounding like The 1975. He has told several close mates about how wound up he is by the situation," The Sun newspaper quoted the source as saying.

"Matt feels like Harry (Styles) and the boys have pinched The 1975's very unique sound. It won't be something they've done on purpose. But they would hardly be the first band in history to have been influenced by their peers.

"Either way, the next time they see each other is bound to be awkward," the source added.
