Higgs and Pritchard decided to form a band once their degree had finished. Towards the end ofHiggs and Niven devised plans to start a band "with a sort of Paul Morley -inspired, poptimist aesthetic". It was easiest to play gigs like this and to get to grips with playing together. Quickly gaining attention from the music industry, the band began working with producer David Kosten Bat For LashesFaultline. Everything Everything released their first single "Suffragette Suffragette" on 1 December  through XL Recordings offshoot Salvia as a limited 7" vinyl release only.
This was later followed by the release of single "Photoshop Handsome", which saw the group incorporate synths in their sound for the first time, on 20 Julyavailable only as a limited 7" single. At this point, Niven left the band to pursue a career in academia  and was replaced by Guernsey-born guitarist Alex Robertshaw, whose former band Operahouse had split up a few months previously. Everything Everything made the longlist of the BBC Sound of on 7 Decembera list created by Britain's tastemakers who vote for their favourite new artists.

New Musical Express dubbed the band as "pop's new Picassos" and commented "there are three dirty words in indie right now: ambition, intellect and effort.
Everything Everything don't just fit those terms, they pole-vault over them. EE Cough Cough - Everything Everything - Arc wilfully eccentric, and endlessly entertaining, but they know more than most Cough Cough - Everything Everything - Arc to craft a song, how to make an album. They know how Cough Cough - Everything Everything - Arc give it depth, light and dark, and they — crucially — know when to stop.
On 28 November along with local Manchester musicians Badly Drawn Boy and I Am Kloot Everything Everything performed as part of the Billie Butterfly charity concert, raising funds for American medical Cough Cough - Everything Everything - Arc for Billie Bainbridge, a local young girl diagnosed with a rare brain tumour. InEverything Everything resumed work with David Kosten on sessions for their second album.

Higgs noted that in comparison to the complexity of the songs on Man Alivethe songwriting on Arc was intended to be a simpler distillation of his ideas and a more direct expression of his emotion.
In an interview with the New Statesmanhe explained that the new album was "far more open. It's far less cluttered and far less difficult to work out what's going on or what I'm saying. I think we tried to straighten it out and make it less distracting and more solid and strong.
There are fewer places to hide I think, so that's the main thing. It's clear now who's doing what. It took us a long time to be confident enough to do that.
The album was hailed as "another tour de force"  by The Observeralthough The Guardian was more sparing with praise - "Jerky opener Cough Cough may showcase them at their most self-consciously wacky, but The Peaks is at the opposite end of the spectrum, attempting the kind of stadium melancholia beloved of Elbow or Coldplay. Inevitably, Arc lacks coherence; it's the sound of a band working out who they want to be.
Hopefully that'll be the band that combines both modes seamlessly, as they Councillor Johnstone - The Levellers - Hello Pig - The Offal on Kemosabe and Armourland, a sleek piece of robo-pop that links social breakdown with the emotional barriers we all put up.
New Musical Express regarded the album as "a leaner, more relatable beast than its predecessor The self-conscious straining to be regarded as innovators and iconoclasts that occasionally muddled their debut is absent here: this is a record less bothered about surface than it is about feeling Slowly but surely, they are progressing towards something extraordinary.
The intertwined themes of technology and disconnection are prevalent through Arc. A third single from Arc - "Duet" - was released on 25 March on 7" vinyl. The band's third studio album, Get to Heavenwas released on 22 June They're not the usual topics for a top 40 chart act, but that's exactly what alt-pop band Everything Everything have been writing about over the past year […] The lyrics were inspired when the Manchester band took a year off from touring, and Higgs started watching rolling news on a loop".
Higgs told Savage, "After we'd finished the record, I read the lyrics back and I realised I'd written a horror bible". The video sees the band's frontman Jonathan Higgs take over production. He said via a press release, "The song talks about seasons passing and getting older, so we wanted to concentrate on the Sun and make it into a kind of oppressive force - positive and life-giving but also burning and destructive.
We used Ultra-Violet and Infra-Red cameras to get a look at the sun damage on our skin, and give everything an alien look. We shot in a quarry so we could have a clear horizon and a dry, hot, desert scene. They also announced they are working on a 4th album, with Higgs commenting that its lyrics will "inevitably" be affected by Brexit. Everything Everything are noted for an extremely eclectic and dynamic style, with complex song construction and dense, detailed lyrics sung in falsetto by Jonathan Higgs.

Bassist Jeremy Pritchard has said the band's intention is "to avoid cliche, or the cliches expected of white men with guitars from Manchester" and sums up their sound as "highly stylised Cough Cough - Everything Everything - Arc deracinated — we're influenced by everything except bar blues. And we all love good honest pop. I suppose that love of R'n'B comes through in a way. We don't normally say 'we want this song to sound like this or that', we try to be as organic as possible.
It's like with The Beatles — they were trying to play the black music of the day, and by doing so, they sort of changed it, it became a different thing.
We thought about But we decided against it, because it's a fine line between filtering that music, or just trying to ape it by going to the source of it We all love Michael Jackson and stuff Seaside - Loscil - Isolatedmix 26 - Waterborne that; dance music in general, or just that sort of syncopated music.
