Here's another band of instrument-playing teen boys, but they could hardly be more different to The Strypes. 5 Seconds of Summer is a very cute Australian boyband who are currently in the U.K. recording their debut album and will support One Direction on their 2013 arena tour. I immediately noticed that they sounded like Busted, so was interested to hear they've been writing with James Bourne and McFly. Latest reports say they're with Sony ATV for publishing but unsigned for records.
