Vulture magazine reckon 5 Seconds of Summer are the fellas to fill that 'boy band-shaped hole' One Direction have left since buggering off on their hiatus. And while we totally get that they're helping keep us vaguely sane there's one slight issue. Um, they're not actually a boy band.
Yup - the mag have been yappin' on about how Ashton, Michael, Luke and Calum could be the boys to help heal the achy-breaky hearts of Directioners during these difficult times and they're basically spot on tbh. Except the 'boy band' bit. That ain't cool, fool.
Have y'all not *read* the Rolling Stone interview? They're proper punk rock.
Speaking about the 5SOS fellas, someone at the mag reckons they'll help 'pop's young, female listenership feel less alone.' They said: "Like 1D, where 5SOS shine brightest is in making pop's young, female listenership feel less alone. They embrace and empathize with the now while still looking toward the hope of what comes next. In some cases, that future may very well include a guitar; it's easy - and awesome - to see how their palm-muted power chords would inspire such a reaction among 5SOSers."
They continued: "In that sense, 5 Seconds of Summer are not One Direction. But just know that in 1D's absence, 5SOS can fill the boy-band-shaped hole in your heart - if you're willing to break the mold a little."
Well at least they get that they're not an out-and-out boy band, we guess *shrugs*.
