M.A.D – ‘Shotgun’

With the boyband phenomenon still sweeping the country, there are many young, next generation boybands appearing, wishing to steal the hearts of the teenage population.

Here at Brumotions, we are always on the look out for new music to tell all of you about so you can feast your ears on it, which helped us discover M.A.D, who you can also catch appearing in this weeks Brumotions Playlist of the Week!

M.A.D. for it:  Band members Dan, Michael and Ben.

M.A.D, a trio made up of Dan Lewis from South Wales, Michael Sutthakorn from Northern Ireland and Ben ‘AB’ Pryer from London (Left to Right) – are back with their newest single ‘Shotgun’ after achieving incredible success in the Top 40 chart with their debut single ‘Toyboy’ and their second single ‘Fame & TV’, which were both released and achieved ONLINE!

Shotgun is bubblegum pop at its finest!

The track is likeable with a memorable and upbeat tune, which will leave a smile on your face and is perfect for a younger audience.

However, we can’t help but feel that the song is slightly repetitive and bland in comparison to other songs gracing the charts at the moment. We also notice their newest tune bares a close resemblance to ‘Angel with a Shotgun’ by The Cab.

With that being said, the band have boyish good looks, which combined with their inoffensive lyrics and energetic video with love declarations, leave many girls wishing they could ride shotgun with the band.

M.A.D have already amassed a large online following and are a group to watch out for this year! We are sure they will continue to grow as a band and produce a more mature sound that we are sure everyone will love (including us)!

Shotgun is out NOW! And can be purchased on ITunes!

5 Seconds of Summer – ‘Don’t Stop’

Every time you release new music, it gets harder for us and you know it, know it, know it!

5 Seconds of Summer are back with their second single ‘Don’t Stop’, following the incredible success of their debut single ‘She Looks So Perfect’, which gained a number one spot in 39 countries and we LOVE their newest single!

The Australian band, made up of Michael Clifford, Ashton Irwin, Luke Hemmings and Calum Hood burst onto the music scene after playing an array of shows – however, they sky-rocketed to stardom after touring with British-Irish boyband One Direction.

We have been following the 5SOS journey before the lads became the pop-rock phenomenon’s they are today and it’s no surprise that they are causing hysteria, leaving girls and boys alike crying, shaking and even swooning over the teen heartthrobs who have stolen their hearts.

But 5SOS aren’t your typical boyband, but that’s why we love them, they each play their own instruments and are bringing back the revival of pop-punk music to the masses breaking the mould and being a band for everyone to enjoy!

Don’t Stop is instantly memorable and the mix of infectious lyrics and perfect vocals have left us signing along for hours on end, it will get you dancing around your room, head banging in the car and even singing it in the shower, it’s a great summer song and will leave you in a great feel good mood.

This is incredibly catchy tune teamed with the music video shows 5 Seconds of Summer’s fun personalities and the idea that they don’t take themselves too seriously as they adopt superhero persona’s to help the world: Dr. Fluke (Luke), Mike-Ro-Wave (Michael), Cal Pal (Calum) and Smash (Ashton)!

Their good deeds range from helping old ladies cross the road, litter picking, saving kittens and beating up ninja’s to save the ‘damsel in distress’ all whilst wearing tights… Oh yes girls, tights!

Don’t Stop is available NOW!

And 5SOS’ debut, self-titled album is available for pre-order!

We absolutely love what 5 Seconds of Summer are doing and if you haven’t seen the video already, check it out below:

One Direction – ‘You & I’

Popular (and one of our favourite boybands), British-Irish boyband One Direction have released their new single, the incredible ‘You & I’ which features on their third studio album Midnight Memories with great success already!

One Direction, who were put together during their time on the X-Factor, consisting of Harry, Liam, Zayn, Louis and Niall (though we’d be surprised if you didn’t know this already!) released the track as their fourth single from the album on May 25th.

You & I is an amazing and elegant power ballad by the group, which has received an amazing response from the lads’ millions of fans from across the world (including the video which shows the boys looking just as incredible).

In an interview onĀ Good Morning Britain, Harry said “You & I is a love song. It’s saying that you’re inseparable or nothing can get in the way of you and your love.”

The lyrics perfectly showcase the incredible vocal abilities from all five of the boys and show their defiance in the subject of love in the lyrics: “You and I, we don’t wanna be like them. We can make it ’til the end, nothing can come between You & I.”

One-Direction-1D-You-And-I

You & I already raced up the charts back when the lads released their third album Midnight Memories and we expect the boys to return to the charts fairly quickly with this incredible track.

One Direction remain as one of the biggest groups in the world with a load of top 10 singles under their belt!

And we can’t wait to see what the lads’ fourth studio album has to showcase to the world who are waiting patiently!

You & I is out NOW!
