5 Seconds of Summer Sing About Heartache on ‘Amnesia’ [LISTEN]by Michelle McGahan | PopCrush
5 Seconds of Summer are gearing up for the July 22 U.S. release of their debut, self-titled album — and already fans can’t get enough of their insanely catchy tracks, like the smash ‘She Looks So Perfect’ and ‘Don’t Stop.’ Their latest song, ‘Amnesia,’ is filled with all of the same infectious sounds as their previous hits, only with an overt sadness that will have you reaching for the tissues.
“I wish that I could wake up with amnesia,” the guys sing in harmony on the chorus of the track, which details a painful breakup and was written with help from Good Charlotte frontmen Benji and Joel Madden. “And forget about the stupid little things / Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you / And the memories I can never escape / ‘Cause I’m not fine at all.” Right in the feels!
‘Amnesia’ may be a song about heartache, but it is certainly one that anyone who has had their heart broken can relate to. We love how personal and raw the song is, and it’s only enhanced by the clear emotion in the guys’ voices. This is one we’ll have on repeat for sure.
