If I were to describe this band, I would call them 1D of Australia.
Started as a YouTube sensation, 5 Seconds of Summer (5SOS), a band from Sydney, Australia, consists of Luke Hemmings (Guitar/Vocals), Michael Clifford (Guitar/Vocals), Calum Hood (Bass/Vocals) and Ashton Irwin (Drums/Vocals). When you put four young and cute boys together, it is no wonder that young girls will fall in love with them in no time. These boys got their big break when they toured with One Direction. Since then they have accumulated a phenomenal 9 million + combined Twitter Followers, 1.5 million Facebook Likes and over 40 million YouTube views even before they even released their single.
With such a loyal fanbase, the band debut EP, She Looks So Perfect, reached #1 on the Singapore iTunes album and singles chart. Out of the four tracks in the EP, the title track is my favourite when I listened to it on the radio.
The catchy lyrics and tune just got me singing along to it. This video has more than 1 million views in less than 24 hours when it was first uploaded and has since climbed to over 7 million views since.
I bet this is not the last we will hear from this boys this year. I’m sure they have a lot of things planning up for their fans.
