Australian pop punk four piece 5 Seconds of Summer have come a long way since their inception. Starting out as You Tube band performing cover songs, they have now sold hundreds of thousands of albums after their first record release. They now sell out tours and are one of the most popular young acts to emerge in the last 5 years, with strong fan base of screaming teenage girls.
The band was formed in December of 2011, and came together when Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford and Calum Hood decided to start performing coves on Hemmings YouTube account. The three college friends were then joined by Ashton Irwin who would complete the line-up.
With the popularity of You Tube celebrities at its highest ever, it didn’t take long for the band to get noticed, and the fact their covers were racking up hundreds of thousands of views in such a short time certainly didn’t hurt either. Sony would sign the band on a deal and two EPs would soon follow.
Unplugged and Somewhere New proved to be popular, but it wasn’t until a chance invite from super boy band One Direction that 3 Seconds of Summer’s real breakthrough come. After exposing themselves to a larger audience and one that was very much in their target demographic the band were singed to Capitol Records.
The release of the single ‘She Looks So Perfect’ helped the band received more mainstream recognition, with the single proving to be massively popular going to number one in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. They would go on to tour with One Direction once again that year, before releasing their debut album in the summer.
Their self-titled debut record proved to be a smash hit, debuting at number one in the United States Top billboard 200, as well as hitting the top spot in 13 countries, as well as cracking the top ten in a further 26. The album has since sold more than half of a million copies in the United States alone, proving the band to be one of the hottest new acts performing.
5 Seconds of Summer have proven to be a new breed of young performer. Despite being dubbed a boy band by many of their detractors, the band writes all of their own material as well as performing all of their own instruments. It has been linked to the similarities with boy bands such as One Direction, who they have toured with extensively. Dispute this they still have a massive fan base of female listeners, many of who are in their early teens.
With only one album release under their belts, 5SOS have the world at their feet. Young, hungry and enthusiastic, there looks to be no stopping the four young men from Australia. Extensive touring and new albums are scheduled for the upcoming years for the band, and the sky appears to be the limit for them.
