SINGLE REVIEW: 5 Seconds Of Summer – Jet Black Heart
It’s no secret that 5 Seconds Of Summer haven’t been impressing me recently with their lackluster live show and painfully terrible singles for their upcoming second studio album. I gave up hope for this new album but they’ve finally released a song which has restored my interest just a tiny bit. “Jet Black Heart” is a break up rock ballad that delivers real emotion, a great hook and smooth harmonies that don’t come across cheesy, gimmicky or annoying unlike the mind numbing “She’s Kinda Hot”. “Cause I’ve got a jet black heart and there’s a hurricane underneath it trying to keep us apart. I write with a poison pen but these chemicals moving between us are the reason to start again”. This is the sound I like to hear on the guys because it’s genuine and comes from an honest and real place unlike the try hard material they are trying to make a thing. Didn’t they get the memo that “Fetch” won’t happen? Because neither will “She’s Kinda Hot” or “Fly Away”.
