5 Sec­onds Of Sum­mer

Where Berlin - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Af­ter first at­tract­ing no­tice on YouTube, then ac­cu­mu­lat­ing a siz­able fan­base on Face­book and Twit­ter, Aus­tralia’s 5 Sec­onds of Sum­mer landed the gig that would launch their ca­reer: open­ing for teen sen­sa­tion One Di­rec­tion. The quar­tet has since de­vel­oped a per­sona that has helped dif­fer­en­ti­ate it from the no­to­ri­ous X Fac­tor band, cop­ping a de­cid­edly punk look and sound, com­pared to the more clean-cut 1D. 5SOS (that’s “five sauce” to true fans) have also made music his­tory, be­com­ing the first band to have their first two al­bums hit No. 1 – a coup they’re hop­ing will help pro­pel them out of boy-band-dom and into the leagues of other “le­git” music acts. When the boys hit Berlin on their sec­ond head­lin­ing tour, ex­pect plenty of punk-pop hits – and shriek­ing star-struck teens. 6 June. www.mercedes-benz-arena-berlin.de.
