5 Seconds Of Summer Keeps Things Fun On 'Sounds Good Feel Good'
Ah, the Aussie band that made an unforgettable American Apparel underwear reference one of the coolest ever returns with its sophomore album. 5 Seconds of Summer had a breakout year in 2014, including hit “She Looks So Perfect”, and with Sounds Good Feels Good, the collective seeks to keep things rolling. The question is, do they?

Overall, Sounds Good Feels Good lives up to its title – ultimately it does “sound good” and the music itself “feels good.” That said, Sounds Good Feels Good is by no means some sort of punk-pop magnum opus, if there is such a thing. It’s an enjoyable album, but ...

Can 5 Seconds Of Summer Have An Even Bigger Year?

Will 5 Seconds Of Summer’s Second Album Be Bigger Than Ever?
It would be safe to say that 5 Seconds of Summer have become “kind of a big deal.” The boy band form itself isn’t at its peak, but this Aussie band definitely has been able to impact the charts without question. Technically they’re not a boy band, particularly given an edgier sound that contrasts colleagues like One Direction, not to mention pre-millennial boy bands.

The numbers haven’t lied so far for 5SOS, and if early indications carry w...
