5 Seconds Of Summer Are Back With A New Sound

5 Seconds Of Summer are back on the scene with a new tune called ‘Want You Back’, and if you heard it on the radio we can almost guarantee you would not realise it’s 5SOS.

The Sydney band have completely changed their musical direction, casting off the anthemic, jangly-guitared pop-rock of their youth for a more minimalistic electronics-laced RnB vibe in the vein of later-era One Direction, Guy Sebastian, Ed Sheeran and pretty much everything else you hear in the Top 40 RN.

It comes after guitarist Michael Clifford revealed to fans that the group’s third album would represent a “departure” from their established sound.

“I think when all the new stuff comes out, it’s like a departure of our old sound but it still keeps elements of all of the things we liked about it. It was just time for us to change,” Clifford recently told Billboard.
