You, Too, Can Dress Like Taylor Swift

Free People is celebrity-approved…but is it editor-approved?

I was in middle school during Tumblr’s prime era of influence. It was a simpler time, listening to Urban Outfitters records on an Urban Outfitters turntable and aspiring to be the most aesthetically pleasing version of yourself. We lived for artsy Instagram posts wearing chevron necklaces, reblogging edits of Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, and pairing hi-low skirts with Doc Martens.

5SOS’ New Album “C A L M” Is Anything But, and That’s Amazing

The pop quartet’s fourth album is catchy and epic pop musicin all the best ways

5 Seconds of Summer have never been subtle.

From their pop-punk early days to now, they've always had a ferocious appetite for anthemic love songs. "What a blessing to feel your love," the band calls out in epic choral harmonies on "Red Desert," the first track off the band's fourth album C A L M–which is anything but, by the way.

But the quartet really do make excellent pop songs. The Post-Grunge intro on "No Shame" feels nostalgic, while the bold-faced chorus is as bombastic and rambunctious as the 5sos of yore. "Easier" was one of the most slept on pop hits of the decade, and "Old Me" thematically sounds cheesy, but in execution it's a reflective and vulnerable coming-of-age song.

Other moments shine just as brightly. "Wildflower" gives Harry Style's "Sunflower Vol. 6" a run for its money, and Luke Hemming's crisp vocal flourishes showcase a prolific talent for pop melodies in refreshing moments like "Not in the Same Way," and "High."

While C A L M's sleek production may only be heard for a cycle or two in malls and dentist waiting rooms, everyone hearing it will undoubtedly be nodding along.
