The Aussies' Catchy Single 'She Looks So Perfect' Is Selling Well In The UK.
Formed in Sydney in 2011 and with an average age of 18, 5 Seconds of Summer, or 5SOS, are Luke Hemmings (lead vocals, guitar), Michael Clifford (guitar, vocals), Calum Hood (bass guitar, vocals) and Ashton Irwin (drums, vocals). The guys met at college and earned attention posting Justin Bieber covers online. Having amassed a total of 5 million YouTube views, the band have a strong social media presence which could mean they're in for a One Direction-esque rocket to fame.
The band spent most of last year getting acquainted with their fanbase whilst supporting One Direction on their Take Me Home world tour. That the 5SOS guys will grab number one in the UK is a pretty fair bet right now: they're outsripping the sales of their closest rivals by more than two copies to one.
