It is here! It is here! Nickelback karaoke masters Ashton Irwin, Luke Hemmings, Calum Hood, and Michael Clifford finally released their second album! On Oct. 23, pop-punk quartet 5 Seconds of Summer dropped Sounds Good Feels Good. If you a) are a 5SOS fan and b) pay for a subscription to a certain music streaming service, then I'd be willing to bet one inflatable giraffe that the following question has already popped up in your noggin: When will 5 Seconds of Summer's Sounds Good Feels Good show up on Spotify? Well, have I got some great news for you: the album has already been made available on the music streaming service. Hooray!
Are you super stoked to check out the highly anticipated followup to the Aussie band's self-titled debut album? I am right there with you. After all, Sounds Good Feels Good happens to include "She's Kinda Hot," an early ‘00s pop punk-influenced tune that was cowritten by Good Charlotte’s Benji and Joel Madden. Oh! And the album's track list also happens to include "Hey Everybody!", an anthemic jam that samples Duran Duran’s “Hungry Like The Wolf." If those catchy-as-all-get-out singles are any indication of what the rest of the album is like, I think it's safe to assume Sounds Good Feels Good will live up to its name.
OK, you caught me. Yes, I've already listened to the album several times in a row. And yes, Sounds Good Feels Good does just that.
