New band alert: R5
This song is the EP title track, and we think it represents the album really well. Full of synth beats, this slow-building anthem will be stuck in your noggin all day. It’s super catchy, and after the third listen, we can’t help but sing along.
“Fallin’ For You”
This song has more of a rock sound to it than the rest of the EP, which shows how surprisingly versatile R5 is. We heart the line, “You like mismatched socks with polka dots, you like your pizza cold, I think that’s hot.” This tune is all about falling for a girl who’s a bit different, but totally genuine. Think you fit the bill?
“I Want You Bad”
While we love the whole EP, this track has gotta be our fave. It was just made for dancing. Just take this line, for example: “I’m in love with someone else’s girl, you rock my world, but you’re the one that I can’t have.” It tells the story of wanting to be with the one person R5 can’t have—their best friend’s girlfriend! Hey, if this band can make even a sticky situation like this into a lighthearted and catchy tune, we’re all for it.
“Here Comes Forever”
This song starts off with an edgy and basic beat before the chorus sets in with lines like, “Here comes that movie scene, one you think is so cliché, that moment when we kiss by the lake, pouring rain.” Umm, we don’t care if it’s cliché, we’ll totally take it. There are even lines as cute as “Let’s grow old together, here comes forever, girl.” Yes, please!
You may know Ross from Austin & Ally and Riker from Glee, but we’re pretty confident that you’ll come to know the entire R5 gang pretty well this year. Their music is awesome and is bound to make them very successful.
After grabbing the EP, make sure to keep your eye out for new spring and summer tour dates for this hot new group.
