5 Seconds of Summer, an up-and-coming Australian band, released their newest EP, She Looks so Perfect, on April 1 which hit number 1 on multiple charts and became an instant hit.

The band, consisting of Calum Hood, Luke Hemmings, Ashton Irwin and Michael Clifford, formed in 2011 and gained a massive audience with their covers of pop songs on YouTube. They have done multiple small tours around Australia as well as in the UK. 5SOS were the opening act for One Direction during their Take Me Home tour and have since skyrocketed into global success.

The EP, a preview of their much anticipated debut album, features four tracks which capture the essence of this pop-rock group. 5 Seconds of Summer contributed to the songwriting process by working alongside their producers to create their EP. Their worldwide debut single, She Looks so Perfect, was co-written and produced by Jake Sinclair with additonal producing by Eric Valentine, who has worked with Good Charlotte and The All-American Rejects. 

5 Seconds of Summer are touring around the U.S. this month and are set to open up for One Direction’s worldwide stadium tour Where We Are.
