Jam of the Day: 5 Seconds of Summer – Hey Everybody

Australian pop-rock band 5 Seconds Of Summer burst onto the international music scene thanks to the overwhelming support of One Direction. Their debut self-titled album put the boys on the map, and now they’re back with a brand new album! The album’s lead single She’s Kinda Hot has been a massive hit here in South Africa, charting on many radio charts around the country. And now 5SOS have chosen Hey Everybody as the album’s second single.

The song heavily samples Duran Duran’s Hungry Like The Wolf but gives it a more punk rock spin. Hey Everybody! isn’t something ground-breaking from the lads and is exactly the kind of song we expected them to release next. While the track is catchy, we would love to hear a different side to the band because everything is becoming incredibly predictable.

While the song disappoints, the video is hilarious and shows the boys earning minimum wage while they dream of ‘a life where they would never have to worry about money again’. We’re excited to see what the lads bring on their new album Sounds Good, Feels Good which releases on Friday. One thing is for sure, we’re expecting the album to sell like hot cakes!
