Nowadays, everything is about boybands, and girlbands. Bunches of groups come out of nowhere and claim themselves as boybands and girlbands. Being in a group with couple of people, singing and dancing on stage together was like something others would like to stay as far as they could. But it seems not for now. So many boybands and girlbands out there that sometimes I feel sick about it already. Some of them are really good, but some of them are not. I found these boys accidently when I scrolled down Youtube pages, browsing One Direction fancams. Then their name came out instead. These guys could be a freshener for you who wanted to have something new for your ears. They’re called 5 Seconds of Summer.
Nope, they’re not a boyband. Nope, they’re not singing and dancing on stage. But they’re rocking those music instruments and playing their own music, ruling the stage. The band consists of four members, all boys (for girls, they’re all currently single 😉 ). Luke Hemmings on guitar and lead vocal, Calum Hood on bass and main vocal, Michael Clifford on guitar and vocal, last but not least Ashton Irwin on drums and vocal. Coming from Sydney, 5SOS-the way this group’s name shortened- were just students that liked to do cover of popular songs and uploaded it on to Youtube. They also did write some of their songs and made some videos of it. Apparently their popularity got One Direction interested. They were soon announced to be One Direction’s tour opening act in 2013.They rocked the concerts and successfully stole many girls’ hearts there.
Despite their young ages, they make good music that soon will be stuck in your head in seconds. I’ll say their songs are super catchy. You gotta check some of their songs. Luke and Calum have unique voices that give you the need to hear them singing over and over again. Michael’s guitar playing and Ashton’s drums playing will make you dance along to the beat of their songs. They can make you fall in love with them deeper, when you watch them doing acoustic. Here is some of their videos.
