Introducing 5 Seconds of Summer!
If you haven’t heard of the Australian pop rock band 5 Seconds of Summer (or 5SOS for short) you’re not alone… but if you know and love them, you’re in good company!
The band features 16-year-old Luke “Hemmo” Hemmings on lead vocals and guitar, 17-year-old guitarist Michael Clifford, 17-year-old bassist Calum Hood, and 18-year-old drummer Ashton Irwin.
The boys are all super cute, talented, AND they play their own instruments! Though they may not yet be well known to American audiences, they’re certainly a force to be reckoned with.
One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson is a long time fan of the 5SOS, and when he posted a link of their YouTube page to his Twitter, it helped the boys rise to international fame! 1D’s Niall Horan is also a big fan, tweeting a video clip of the band’s first single, “Out Of My Limit.”
The song is an emotional, guitar-driven rock tune about love and longing- a topic we can all relate to! The video for the song reached 100,000 views within just a day!
