5 Seconds Of Summer – Girls talk boys Review
The much talked about Ghostbusters reboot is all around theaters today, the awaited soundtrack has also arrived and along with it comes the single ‘Girls talk boys’ – from 5 Seconds Of Summer. Just when you though the movie couldn’t get any more comedic, wait till you hear 5 Seconds of summer’s new funky summer entry of 2016.
I thought the long talked about debate, whether they are a boy band or not is over, but regardless of the discussion on the band’s manhood. The song has definitely elevated people’s mindsets of their creativity and boldness.
The song has gained quite some positive acclaim from critics for the songs energy translated into an awesome blend of classic funk with solid modern flares.
Girls talk boys has entered the US Billboard Hot 100 at No.69 whereas No.21 on the ARIA charts. Elsewhere in the regions of Europe and East Asia the song remained in 40’s mark all the way to early tail of 100’s charts.
In addition to music, it’s fantastic to know the band members know what they’re doing. According to band member Ashton Irwin – “The song is just fantastic and it also fits in with where the band’s sound is going. We are so excited for the fans to hear our new direction of music,”
Unlike their previous works of punk-pop, the song is more inclined towards classical funk guitar riffs and some soulful falsetto.
Beginning with some strong guitar riffs and the high pitched vocals creates a perfect classical blend, almost taking you back 20 years to a disco themed TV commercial. Hands claps in the back ground with a slow modest tempo beat, just gives it the soft depth and character required.
Unlike choruses which are the heart of a song, Luke Hemmings solo bridge is absolutely magnificent. For a second, it doesn’t feel like a part of this song. The slow vocal verse puts the listener back onto the ground after high flying circus choruses. The perfect balance is achieved through it.
All in all, considering how things are conforming around the four-man Aussie clover. The band is all set and tinkered to create music that is not heard before but also feels funkily fresh and energetic.
A music video was released on 22 July 2016 and features scenes from the Ghostbusters film.
