An Australian pop punk band, 5 Seconds of Summer is making a commotion in the music world. The band, consisting of Luke Hemmings (lead vocals, guitar), Michael Clifford (guitar, vocals), Calum Hood (bass guitar, vocals) and Ashton Irwin (drums, vocals), has been together since 2011 but has recently been attracting much acclaim. This self-made band reached their level of success from humble beginnings as they first gained popularity when they posted covers of other artists’ work on Hemmings’ Youtube channel. Their recently released EP “She Looks So Perfect”, spread a wave of pride among fans while also attracting new ones. They have previously toured with the famous boy band, One Direction and will be touring with them again later this year to spread their fan base. The new EP compromises of four pop songs from the band, giving fans a taste of what the new album is going to be about.

The EP “She Looks So Perfect” has been out since February on pre-order and was recently released for sale in April. The band has previously created a pop, punk vibe for their music but the boys hope to come up with something a bit different this time around. An interview shared that “The album’s going to be a bit more diverse and a bit more colorful. We’ve been working with some of our favorite writers and producers, which helped us a lot with our sound.” Their inspiration comes from bands such as Green Day and The Used. The songs on the newest EP are very pop culture and appeal to the younger populations as they already have in the US, Australia, and the UK. With such international support, the boys are excited to put something new out there. This album also gave the boys a chance to work with their idols such as Alex Gaskarth from All Time Low. They are also excited to bring in a female touch to their music, explained by Irwin as he said “We’ve got like nearly over 100 songs written [for the album] because we’ve been writing for over a year now. There’s one track that we’d really like to get a female vocal on, so we’ll see what happens”. The preview on the EP certainly shows an energy explosion in their new work which they’re excited to showcase in their upcoming concert with One Direction.

5 Seconds of Summer, a new rising band are making their way into people’s hearts all over the world. Their music is fully of energy and optimistic vibes, making the listener just want to live in the beautiful world of their music forever. Their music speaks to younger generations about life experiences. They hope to continue to have the opportunity to spend their time writing and performing for their increasing fan base. They want this new album to bring a side their fans have never seen before: a more colorful, brighter band. They would like to set themselves apart from other “boy bands” and show that they are truly unique in their work. Playing their own instruments and writing their own songs is one way they chose to do just that. Starting from the small shores of Australian beaches, working their way to international fame, 5 Seconds of Summer is certainly bringing new cards to the game.
