SINGLE REVIEW: 5 Seconds Of Summer – She’s Kinda Hot
Their success has been unprecedented and it’s not slowing down anytime soon. 5 Seconds Of Summer have become the poster boys for overnight success and with their debut album spanning four hit singles their sophomore album is expected to do the same. They’ve written and recorded this upcoming album on the road so I’m not expecting the best quality material and their first single isn’t doing them any favors. First of all the title “She’s Kinda Hot” already makes me want to stick pins in my eyes, like haven’t we moved on from these misogynic type songs? The lyrics begin tragically and cringe worthy but lead into a slightly empowering Good Charlotte-esq hook. “They say we’re losers and we’re alright with that. We’re the leaders of the not coming back, but we’re alright though”. After a few listens it becomes annoyingly catchy but I would still change the channel if it came on the radio while I was in the car. From their previously released singles this is their weakest and is really aimed for their already existing fan base. Its nothing ground breaking and if you weren’t already a fan this song isn’t going to win you over or impress you the slightest. Next please.
