5 Seconds of Summer Releases New Song “Wildflower”
- Australian pop rock band 5 Seconds of Summer will release their fourth studio album “CALM” this Friday (March 27th).
From the album, the band released the fifth single “Wildflower” on March 25th.
The album comprises of 12-track (Deluxe version 15-track) and is their first LP in two years.
The band drummer Ashton Irwin MusicFeeds.com.au about the album, “As far as sonic inspirations go, we always try to incorporate some of what everyone is actually listening to so it's a more genuine and influenced record that we can speak on. We were listening to a lot of industrial music because the rhythms are fantastic for melodic writing and the melodic process. We are rock and roll fans but the rhythmic side of regular rock and roll isn't great for modern pop at this very particular time. So we dove into industrial beats and sounds and found ourselves really inspired by those sounds. So we chased that down.”
- He continued, “I love the concepts on this album. It seems more lighthearted than the last. I don't know if that's true or not but from where we were writing it, it seems so. Some of it is sad but also, I think it's broader which we needed.”
Frontman Luke Hemmings added, “There's definitely a lightness to it. I feel like the last album was pretty heavy and dark. Whereas this one has that side of it with the lighter side of life and moving forward rather than being stuck in one place. You've got that darkness and also the moving forward, the acceptance, the forgiveness and moving on and forward with life.”
