5 Seconds of Summer (or 5sos as the fangirls love to call them) are an Australian band made up of Calum Hood, Michael Clifford, Luke Hemmings and Ashton Irwin. Calum plays bass guitar and vocals, Michael plays guitar and does backing vocals, Ashton plays the drums and backing vocals and Luke is lead singer and a guitarist. Their main genres of music are punk, rock and pop. They are from Sydney and they are basically amazing.
5sos is easily my favourite band and not just because they are all incredibly cute and the fact that they produce awesome music but because they seem like such a real group of boys who are only doing what they love and nothing less. Unlike a lot of boy bands these days, they weren’t formed for the purpose of being famous, they are best friends who originally started with a YouTube account and a guitar.
Some of their singles that have made it onto the radio are ‘She Looks So Perfect’, ‘Don’t Stop’ and ‘Good Girls’. Although these are their most successful songs, their latest album which hasn’t even been released a week is wildly popular all over the world. My personal favourite song from the album is ‘English Love Affair’ which, in mums opinion, has an “eighties influence”. I think that all their songs are fun and the perfect songs to make you feel better.
As I’m writing this, I am listening to their album for like the ninetieth time and I can not think of a single reason why I wouldn’t love their music. They have everything going for them – looks, personality and talent. 5 Seconds of Summer are just the perfect all rounders that have captured the hearts of teenage girls from all over the world, including me and majority of my friends. As well as being the real deal (talent wise) they are also Australian which adds appeal to Australian fans as we want nothing more than to see Australian boys succeed.
