5 Seconds of Summer

This week, I would like to showcase a band called 5 Seconds of Summer. 

The band, formed in 2011, originates from Sydney, Australia, and has four members.

Michael Clifford at the guitar and assisting in vocals.
Calum Hood as the bass guitar and also vocals.
Luke Hemmings as the lead vocalist and guitar.
Ashton Irwin at the drums and vocals.

This band is absolutely phenomenal! Not too long ago, they were sitting in front of the camera playing for the audience of YouTube. Now, they are playing for ever fan at One Direction's "Take Me Home" tour. 

Now don't get scared by hearing that they're opening for One Direction! They are not a boy band! They take inspiration from artists such as Blink-182, All Time Low, Ed Sheeran, Mayday Parade, and Boys Like Girls. So I'd say that they play a mixture of Pop/Punk Rock music. Something that I definitely fancy (I don't know, I like few bands in that genre, but when I do I love them. Which you'll come to find out.). 

They are definitely worth the listen. I posted the videos for Heartbreak Girl, Try hard, and Out of My Limit down under (Get it? Okay, I'll stop.).
