When 5SOS released their new single last night at 9PM and I watched it several times even though my internet was supposed to be off (good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught) I realised that I should probably reveal my love of them to you. And what better way than through a review of their debut album.
If you didn't know 5SOS is short for 5 Seconds of Summer a group of four Australian boys who claim to be punk rock. Their self-titled debut album reached number two in the UK album charts and I love it if for no other reason than the packaging I mean... look!
With the gorgeous packaging aside I have to admit that the songs - although brilliant - are perhaps more mainstream pop than the majority of the fandom had been hoping for. That's not to say that I don't love them all - I've had 18 stuck in my head for days - it just means that fans are worried about the band being labelled as a boy band. Yes, they're boys. Yes, they're in a band. But they play their own instruments, fail miserably when they try to dance and their latest music video should dispel any 12 year old fans.
