They might not have hit the big time with their new single ‘Want You Back’, but the boys from 5 Seconds Of Summer will hope its video changes its fortunes.
While the track mightn’t have set the ARIA charts alive just yet (it peaked at No.32 and is currently at No.78), it’s clear the boys still enjoy tremendous popularity; the clip’s been viewed in excess of 1.1 million times in less than 24 hours.
‘Want You Back’ is an incredibly likeable pop earworm; nowhere near as heavy as the boys’ previous outings.
It’s primed for widespread radio play and comes with a fresh, colourful music video filmed inside a series of square rooms.
A departure in sound, definitely. But a seriously polished and assured one.
