5 Seconds of Summer go for trippy in ‘Wildflower’

We just want to know how high the guys from 5 Seconds of Summer were when they shot this music video because it was a trip from beginning to end. Think of it as a hallucinogen daydream mixed with chunks from the 70s and 90s.

Don’t believe us? Watch “Wildflower” above.

Side note. According to the band, they filmed the video by passing a green screen from house to house and letting each of them do their own thing.

“We made this at home by passing around a green screen from house to house (disinfecting it of course) and capturing the footage on our phones.”

At least they’re being hygienic about it.

“Wildflower” is featured on 5 Seconds of Summer’s latest release, C.A.L.M.

5 Seconds of Summer treat fans to ‘Wildflower’

5 Seconds of Summer’s new album is due out in less than 48 hours, but that’s not stopping the guys from giving us one last tune to hold us over until then.

On Wednesday (March 25), the Australian group unleashed one final single before their album’s official drop. Titled “Wildflower,” the almost four-minute track sounds like a departure from all the other tracks they’ve released so far.

But let’s be honest, none of the songs they’ve recently released sound the same.

To coincide with the song’s debut, the foursome has unveiled the lyric video for the track, which features a slew of…you guessed it, wildflowers. Before the video begins, the band gives their followers some insider information about the making of the lyric video.

It took ten straight hours of stop-motion animation, eight hours of editing, 358 different photos, and a grand total of 529 flowers.

Talk about dedication.

Go ahead and show some appreciation for all the hard work by watching the clip one (or 20 times).

“Wildflower” is the fifth single off 5 Seconds of Summer’s upcoming fourth studio album, C.A.L.M.

“Wildflower” joins previously released tracks “Old Me,” “Easier,” “No Shame,” and “Teeth” (our favorite song that has so far been released) featured on the forthcoming 12-track album.

C.A.L.M. is due out this Friday, March 27. Pre-save and pre-order options are still available on the band’s website.

In support of the much-anticipated release, the foursome will hit the North American touring circuit in the late summer. The “No Shame” tour will find the quartet performing at venues across the continent in August and September.

The tour begins on August 12 at the Sports Palace in Mexico City and concludes on September 26 at the Concord Pavilion in Concord, California. The full list of tour dates can be found here.

With everything that is currently happening in the world, we’re not sure what the status of the tour is. As of now, it looks as if the excursion will go forward, but we’ll keep an eye out if there’s any change.
