So, I know that this isn’t anything related to books, but this is very important. I’m a big lover of music, especially orchestra and punk rock. One of my favorite bands ever, 5 Seconds of Summer, recently released there second album. If you don’t know 5 Seconds of Summer, they are a band that toured with One Direction, which got them millions of teenage girl fans, and labeled as a pop band.
Whenever 5 Seconds of Summer (5sos) released their first album, 5 Seconds of Summer, they really got the label of a pop rock band. They had wrote this album within a span of about 2-3 years. Now their sophomore album, Sounds Good Feels Good, has a much different feel to it.
Sounds Good Feels Good, was written within a span of 3 months, and it has a very distant feel from their first album. I would describe it as alternative rock or pop-punk. It has a more mature feel to it, more guitar driven. It’s lyrics are even better as well. They address many problems in today’s society, and some songs perfectly describe that teenage angst many teenagers feel. It almost feels like a revolutionary album against pop music. In fact, in there song Permanent Vacation, one of the lyrics are:
Congratulations, your imitations are taking over the radio station. Corporations, calculations, we’re the voice of the new generation.
If that doesn’t sound like they disagree with today’s society, I don’t know what would.
In short, this band has really made a breakthrough and definitely shown musical and character growth. I would definitely recommend listening to this album on spotify, or even buying it. It is worth it.
