Australian boy band 5 Seconds of Summer has been an influential pop-rock group to youth since 2013. After going on Tour with megastar group One Direction that year, they came out with their self-title-debut album that included the super hit She look So Perfect and changed what a boy band looked like. These four cute dudes gain fans all over world, singing about young love and their rebellious spirits. In interviews, they were cute and goofy, and it was something different and unique. Then, their second album, Sound Good, Feels Good, was released in October 2015, and it didnt engage fans like the first album. The album only sold 192 000 copies in its first week in the United States, compared to their first album, which sold 259 000 copies in its first week the year before. People, including my friends, slowly stop listening to their music. As their momentum slow, it seems like many people just want fans anymore and 5SOS was just teenage phase. Then, band disappear for three years to write their third album. They definitely need that time because their new album Youngblood is absolutely amazing. This album is the epitome of evolution. 5SOS go on a new path, and the results are successful. Starting the album with the title track, Youngblood represent the more emotional side of the band. Song talks a lot about letting significant partner leave relationship even though they want the relationship to continue. In some recent interviews, they talk about how this song come from personal experiences from each member of the band. 5SOS is known for their love songs, but this album takes a different turn. It all about heartbreak this time. Songs Want You Back and Lie to Me are examples of that feeling of heartbreak and turmoil it takes on the band specifically. Another theme in this album is the waste of youth. The guys in this band are all younger than 25, and theyve had experience traveling all over the world, partying and living life. In this album they reflect on all the time theyve spent in the celebrity lifestyle and basically ask the question, Is this all worth it? From song More: Why does it feel like were missing out? / Like I standing behind door / I just wanna get back to us / Cause we used to have more. Other than messages in their songs, beats of their songs have change, too. In the past, theyve used mostly bass, guitar and drums, but on this album, they infuse more piano and also more electronic beats. Some of their songs, such as Talk Fast, have a 1980s pop tone that is really attractive and intriguing. This album is the real evolution of the band. Their message has changed since 2013, and it makes sense. They get older, their fans get older, so it is important that they change. As a 16-year old, I feel like lot of these songs.

5 Seconds of Summer earn their third straight No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart over the weekend with Youngblood, and guys immediately make sure to thank those who got them to the top once again. In series of Instagram pictures of live performances, band and college image of No. 1 5SOS write, Youngblood is a certified Billboard 1 album in America. You come together as people to get the US our third number one record for all the right reasons. Today you made history for 4 young men, and you are every reason why we feel like the luckiest people alive. The group's achievement make them the first Australian act to land three albums at No. 1 on Billboard 200, as their debut self-title LP in 2014 and sophomore set Sounds Good Feels Good in 2016 also debuted on the chart. What's more, they extended their record as the only band to top Billboard 200 with their first three studio albums. Each of the band members also take to their own Instagram accounts to express their gratitude. Just before No. 1 news break, Irwin posted a picture of himself drumming and gush, We are on an incredible high right now. And I am acknowledging it with all my being. Once it becomes official, hemmings declare, 'm overwhelmed with emotion, also asserting that this one feels different. Hood add, trying to find words. Irretrievably grateful for your constant support, and Clifford continues speechless sentiments: I dont have words to thank people that support the US except that we fucking love you.

It is extremely rare-virtually unprecedented-for boy band to reverse momentum seven years into its lifespan. But then again, 5 Seconds of Summer has always been outlier. Three years since their last full length and widely thought to be in commercial decline, Aussie quartet just followed this summer with surprise No. 1 album with yet another eyebrow-raising milestone: their first Top 10 song. Cathartic single Youngblood surpassing likes of Amnesia and She look So Perfect marks slow-burning reinvention of 5SOS; to fully grasp it, you've got to consider the uniqueness that marks them from get-go. 5 Seconds of Summer formed organically back in 2011, not from industry forces or competition Show, but from being YouTube friends who build up sizable followings for their covers of pop songs. Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford, Calum Hood, and Ashton Irwin, all accomplished singers and guitarists, play their own instruments and co-write all their own music; it was optics and marketing-constant content and fan engagement targeted squarely at young women-that earned them the boy band tag. When they break through with that American Apparel underwear song in 2014, they were typically categorized as pop-punk; after all, their just-barely-PG-13-rat sugar rush rock songs land somewhere around Jonas Brothers at their heaviest, Simple Plan at their most Radio Disney. But both of these bands were either broken up or far past their commercial peaks when 5SOS arrive, as were nearly all of the influences Boys wore on their band tees. Even back then, 5sos' popularity was an anomaly. Fast-forward to recent past: 5 Seconds of Summer spent 2017 promising album, but failing to deliver. After finally announcing Youngblood earlier this year, lead single Want You Back failed to make a striking impact, peaking at No. 61 in its lone week on Hot 100-far cry from its predecessor, She's Kinda Hot, which peaks at No. 22 in 2015. And even then, none of Sounds Good Feels Good's subsequent singles peak higher than No. 95, fueling narrative that 5SOS was starting to sputter a little by the end of its second album cycle. Those verse in boy band lore had seen cycle before. For New Kids on Block, Backstreet Boys, Jonas Brothers, Want, and a host of smaller acts, peaks and plunges were linear and obvious: several years of cultural saturation followed by deflating, swing-and-amiss singles and an obvious commercial downturn. Even * NSYNC and One Direction sail off into sunset with choreograph, deliberate goodbyes. After Youngblood dropped on June 22, there was considerable doubt 5SOS could beat out Nas and Christina Aguilera, pair of vital veterans, but well past their commercial primes, for No. 1 album. I interviewed the band over breakfast that morning and while they appeared ready as ever to gun for the stop spot, even their expectations were far below their final figure.

Like the bust s and Mcfly s of early 2000s, 5 Seconds Of Summer's sound and style has always been calculate and consciously safe One. In implementing casual lyricism with playful melodic hooks, Direction take by Australian pop-rock quartet ultimately often boil down to being as easily digestible and mathematically marketable as possible, reaching the intended demographic with ease and huge success. It may not have been the most in-depth, quality material ever produce, but the band's undeniably charismatic approach to their material suits their targeted audience enough to keep wheels turning long after their 2014 debut. In approaching groups ' third studio effort, it would be easy enough to assume that Youngblood just intends to stand as another proud notch in bedpost of being a rather generic Top 10 pop-rock record, But groups state intention to at least offer something different ca help but intrigue slightly. After all, different can mean great many things. And for the sake of artistic integrity, could be worth at least chance. Take Charlie Simpson's complete disregard of former bust To instead pursue the Post-hardcore tones of Fightstar, For example: groups ' sound and style easily prove a huge surprise for those all too familiar with Year 3000, with the groups ' latest effort Behind Devils Back receiving widespread critical acclaim. As previously state, different can mean a great many things, So what does it mean here? Well, compared to teen heartthrob cliches Of She look So Perfect, most obvious observation to be found when glancing over Youngblood's glossy, perfectly produced assortment of tracks is rather simple: Like bust s Night Driver or Fall Out Boy s Mania, Youngblood sees 5 Seconds Of Summer eagerly joining ranks Of their many contemporaries currently enjoying resurgence Of synth-pop / rock. Indeed, from popping, bouncy Better Man, to funky clean guitar riffage Of Want You Back, Youngblood essentially see 5 Seconds Of Summer's usual formula copy-and-paste into the radio friendly aesthetics Of 80s, and for most part, the results are just as you would assume: easily digestible lyricism and fun melodic hooks remain, But in joining party far too late, uneasy feeling that this might just be desperate grab For attention and attempt at staying relevant hangs ominously in air. Of course, let's not forget that this has been a huge part of the band's prerogative ever since their inception: in borrowing from likes of Blink-182 To Mcfly, 5 Seconds Of Summer's debut and following record sound Good Feels Good essentially do everything in their power to relive cliches of early 2000s boyband pop-rock scene, and in doing So achieve virtually nothing New as result.
